Police: Woman Spent $500 with Stolen Card


MOSCOW — Police are looking for the woman who they said used a stolen bank card to buy nearly $500 worth of prepaid phone and gift cards from a store in Lackawanna County.

It happened Tuesday at the Dollar General on South Main Street in Moscow.

Police in Jessup were contacted by a man after his bank notified him of the activity on his card. The victim told police he was still in possession of his card and that it had not been stolen.

According to police, an employee at Dollar General said the woman used an actual card to make the purchases.

Officers said the woman also tried to purchase more gift cards and phone cards worth nearly $500 at ShopRite of Daleville, but the card was declined at that store.

If you recognize the woman in the surveillance picture, you are asked to call Jessup police at 570-342-9111.
