Stolen credit card used to buy gift cards, cigarettes


Lower Paxton Township Police are looking for the woman they say used a stolen debit card at the Giant on Union Deposit Road. The suspect used the card to purchase cigarettes and several gift cards in excess of $250.  The suspect, shown in the surveillance photo, used the card on January 22, 2014 around 5:30pm.  The owner of the card had been shopping in the area before that time and does not know how the card was lost or stolen.

The suspect is described as white female, thin with long straight hair, glasses and wearing a black overcoat with a gray scarf or cowl neck sweater, jeans and high heeled boots.

When asked her age to purchase the cigarettes, the suspect said October 8, 1985.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Lower Paxton Township Police Department at (717) 657-5656, the anonymous Tip-Line at (717) 724-8317 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 262-3080.

    First off, why are they asking age when you are supposed to show the id?

    Second, she's a desperate fool because when those gift cards are used, she'll be caught.

      The larger question is how she knew the PIN for the card. How did her ID match that of the debit card? Clerks fail to pay attention to even the basics of card ID.

        You can hit cancel and use the debit card as a credit card.
