TOWANDA, PA (WENY) -- Pennsylvania State Police are looking for a woman accused of stealing a thousand dollars on reloadable credit cards.
Police say the suspect walked into the Ulster Dandy Mini Mart July 25th, and asked the cashier to put $500 on a Vanilla Reload credit card. Her payment was declined, and she gave a different, non-activated card back to the cashier, and left the activated $500 card. Police say she did again the next day at the Dandy in Towanda.
She's described as having dirty blonde hair, in her 20's or 30's with a thin build, and a tattoo on her upper middle back. She was last seen driving a dark colored four door car, possibly a Honda Civic with a rear spoiler.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Trooper Jeffrey Srendenschek state police barracks in Towanda at 570-265-2186.
