Overland Park police seek woman after racking up $15K on stolen cards

Posted: Updated:
OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

Police are looking for the woman responsible for racking up over $15,000 worth of charges on someone else's credit cards.

Overland Park police said the most recent victim had just finished shopping at an area department store, went to pay for her items and discovered her wallet was missing.

Investigators determined her wallet had been taken from her purse while it was sitting inside the shopping cart.

The victim was later contacted by her bank who said three of her credit cards had been used to purchase over $6,000 in gift cards at an area retail store a short time later.

Police said while the suspect was at the store purchasing the gift cards, she covered her face with her hands as she entered and left the business, in order to avoid the surveillance cameras.

Investigators are still trying to determine if the woman who stole the credit cards is the same one who redeemed the gift cards at four area retail stores.

However, police said this wasn't the first time the suspect has done this. She has totaled more than $15,000 in charges in the Kansas City-area using stolen credit cards.

Overland Park police are asking you to look carefully at the pictures. If you have information on this person's identity, contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS or the Overland Park police at 913-344-8730.
