Fraud Suspect Racks Up $10K in Purchases on Credit Cards Stolen from Local Parks

April 17, 2019

Police believe the same female suspect is responsible for stealing credit cards from vehicles parked in two parks in Montgomery County while the victim was recreating in the parks, and using those credit cards to rack up more than $10,000 in purchases at stores in Germantown and Rockville.  

   Detectives from the Montgomery County Department of Police – 1st District Patrol Investigations Unit and the 6th District Patrol Investigations Unit continue to investigate two cases of credit card theft and the subsequent fraudulent use of those stolen credit cards. 

   Investigators believe that the credit cards may have been stolen from the victims’ vehicles while they were parked at park and recreation facilities located in Derwood and Darnestown.  Investigators further believe that the same female suspect used those stolen credit cards to purchase merchandise at stores in Germantown and Rockville.  Investigators are releasing surveillance photographs of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help to identify her.

   The following thefts are believed to have been committed by the same suspect:

   The suspect stole two credit cards from the victim’s vehicle which had been parked at Lake Needwood located in the 6700 block of Needwood Road in Derwood back on Tuesday, Feb. 19. The suspect then used those credit cards to fraudulently purchase merchandise totaling $5,200 at two stores in Germantown.

   A little more than two weeks later, on Thursday, March 7, police say the suspect stole two credit cards from a victim’s vehicle which had been parked along the Seneca Ridge Trail located in the 16800 block of Riffle Ford Road in the Darnestown area. The suspect then used those credit cards to fraudulently purchase merchandise totaling $5,650 at a store in Rockville.

   Anyone with information about this suspect is asked to call the 1st District Patrol Investigations Unit at 240-773-6070 or call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).  Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 for information provided to them that leads to the arrest and/or indictment of this suspect. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
