Case Number: 1609200118

A 30 year old woman has accused an unknown man of using her credit card without her permission in order to buy liquor from a store last September.

A 48 year old woman called Corpus Christi Police on September 20th to report a suspicious man in the liquor store where the woman is employed. The 48 year old woman told Officers that an unknown man bought several bottles of distilled spirits, and once the credit card was approved, the man turned around to make another purchase of several bottles of liquor. The 48 year old woman told Officers she challenged the larger purchase by requesting to see the man’s identification to match with the card, but the man grabbed the card and left the store.

Officers researched the name on the card and contacted a 30 year old woman who told Officers she did not authorize anyone to use her credit card. The 30 year old woman told Officers her card was stolen on the University campus and she accused the unknown man of credit card abuse.

The unknown man is described as an adult male who wore a black cap, orange long sleeve shirt, had a tattoo of the “CC Hooks” on his left hand and a tattoo of “361” in the shape of a star on his right hand and left in a red in color mustang.
