Officers: Woman Used Stolen Card Number to Buy Gas, Cigarettes
Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Newberry, SC (WLTX) - Officers are searching for a young woman they say took a "compromised" credit card and bought $500 in gift cards, gasoline and cigarettes.

Investigators with the Newberry Police Department are searching for the woman pictured in the attached surveillance images.

Officers say the woman bought $500 in gift cards from the Walmart in Newberry, then walked next door to convenience store Murphy USA, where she bought gas and a carton of Newport cigarettes.

Authorities say the card number was also used in Laurens and Mauldin, each in the Upstate.

Investigators say the female victim, who lives in Virginia, still has her credit card.

The suspect used a white car, also seen in the pictures, according to officers. Police believe the woman is acting alone.
