Tires stolen in credit card fraud
Public Safety Archives
Sunday, September 27. 2009
Over $600 worth of tires were reported stolen from a West May Street business last week.
The suspect ordered the tires using a credit card. When the credit card was declined, the business contacted the suspect advising him of the problem.
The suspect then provided a valid American Express card number. The suspect said he would send his mechanic to retrieve the tires.
After the tires were picked up by the man purporting to be the suspect’s mechanic, it was discovered that the American Express card number had been used fraudulently.
The actual credit card holder notified American Express that the charges were unauthorized and placed the charge in dispute.
The incident remains under investigation.
Other incidents investigated by the Winder Police last week include:
• burglary at a W. Candler Street address.
• criminal trespass on West May Street.
• burglary on 2nd Street.
• theft of lost or mislaid property on 2nd Street.
• theft of lost or mislaid property on North Broad Street.
• theft by taking at a North Broad Street address.
• simple battery and verbal domestic dispute on Stovall Street.
• entering auto on Dreamland Court.
• entering auto on West Athens Street.
• arson on North Broad Street.
• identity theft at an East Wright Street address.
• criminal trespass on Jerome Street.
• burglary on East Broad Street.
• theft by taking at a West Athens Street address.
