Police: Store Employee Helps Crooks Steal Credit Card Info


Pueblo police are asking for the public's help in finding three credit card thieves caught on surveillance video using stolen plastic to get the goods... with the help of a store employee.

Police say a store employee helped three thieves compromise store credit cards and use them to purchase items.

Police say this is how the scheme worked: when a customer would go into the electronic store (police are not releasing which store this occurred in) and open up a store credit card. The store employee would copy their information from the store application and give it to the crooks who would later go into the store and make large purchases on the newly opened credit card. The purchases would go undetected until the victims received their bill. Instead of their initial $200 purchase they now had almost a $3,000 dollar purchases.

If you have any information on this case you are asked to call Pueblo Crime Stoppers @ 542-STOP.
