POLICE SEEK SUSPECT FOR CREDIT CARD ABUSE
A man accidentally leaves his debit card in an ATM machine, then realizes it and returns to find that someone withdrew money from his account just seconds after he left, making this the
Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Sunday, June 26th, 2011, about 8:20 P.M., the victim used the ATM machine at the Bank of America, 1810 N. Zaragoza. After he pulled away he realized that he had left his debit card in the machine. When he returned, however, he discovered that his card was gone and money had already been withdrawn from his account.
Detectives from the Police Department’s Pebble Hills Regional Command obtained surveillance video from the bank which shows a late model SUV, possibly a black 2010 or 2011 Jeep Patriot, driven by a woman. She is described as an Hispanic female in her 30’s with a heavyset build and short hair that is frosted on the sides.
