Woman's Lost Wallet Leads to $2,500 in Credit Card Charges

The following information was supplied by the Stow Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A Stow senior citizen's lost wallet was found not by a Good Samaritan, but by someone who used the woman's credit cards to make more than $2,500 worth of purchases.

According to an incident report just released Dec. 4, responded Nov. 9 to a call regarding theft, misuse of credit cards and forgery.

A 71-year-old resident of the 1800 block of Hibbard Drive told police that she had lost her leather billfold between 11 a.m. and noon on Nov. 9 in the 4300 block of Kent Road.

The victim later learned an unknown female had found the wallet, then visited seven different stores to charge a combined $2,591 in purchases to the victim's credit and debit cards.

Police said they obtained video surveillance images of the suspect, whose identity is unknown.

How about sharing a pic from the surveillance footage, so the public could help with identifying her??
