Woman Steals Credit Card From Mailbox

November 01, 2013

Cochise County officials are looking for a woman who has been trying to use a credit card recently stolen from a mailbox south of Sierra Vista.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carol Capas says the woman was unsuccessful in using the card at Walmart but was able to use it at a gas station in the community of Palominas.

“The woman reporting stated that she was expecting a credit card to come by mail and she did not have it come, but when she contacted the credit card company, they advised her that it had been activated and actually had been used one time in the Palominas area,” Capas said.

She says deputies have a blurry surveillance photo of the suspect but that the card owner was unable to identify her from it.
