DEARBORN — Police are seeking the public’s help in tracking down a woman who stole a wallet from a vehicle Oct. 14, and charging more than $700 to the victim’s credit card.
Police were called to the 2800 block of Cornell where a Livonia man said his wallet was taken from his unlocked vehicle while he visiting family.
He said he received a text message from American Express about 2:30 p.m. inquiring about multiple purchases made with his credit card. He said he checked his vehicle and discovered the wallet missing.
Responding officers obtained the locations of the transactions and determined the person using the card was a black female in her 30s with long hair and wearing a red shirt and black pants. At one of the locations, the woman was observed arriving in a late 1990s to early 2000s black or dark blue Lincoln Continental.
More than $700 was charged to the card in Dearborn, Dearborn Heights and Inkster.
The Police Department requests anyone with information about the crimes call 313-943-2242.
“Crimes of opportunity are difficult crimes to solve but they are easy to prevent,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said. “We ask the public to be steadfast in ensuring their property is secured at all times because it only takes seconds to become a victim.”
