Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 03/02/2022 at approximately 2016 hours, I responded to the One Stop #43 gas station 3915 Darien HWY in reference to an unauthorized use of a debit card that occurred on on February 27, 2022 at this location. I arrived on scene and met with the complainant, Ms. [VICTIM #1], and asked her what happened.

Ms. [VICTIM #1] told me that on February 25, 2022 around 2000 she was at the One Stop gas station and misplaced her [REDACTED BY AGENCY] debit card during her time at the store. Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated that was her last visit to the store that she could remember. Ms. [VICTIM #1] told that on February 27, 2022 she got an alert from her banking App about a possible fraudulent transaction.

Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated that she checked her account and found an unauthorized purchase that occurred on February 27, 2022 at approximately 1920 hours. Ms. [VICTIM #1] showed me her mobile banking App and allow me to view the fraudulent transactions. Ms. [VICTIM #1] stated that she needed a police report to assist her with getting her money back from the bank.

The list of a fraudulent charges is as follows:

  1. February 27, 2022 1920 hours Online Gucci Store total $710.20
  2. February 27, 2022 1921 hours One Stop #43 $59.00
  3. February 27, 2022 1944 hours Walmart Atlama Connector BLVD $157.94
  4. February 27, 2022 2007 hours Parker’s Altama Ave attempted purchase but declined $1.00
    5 March 1, 2022 unspecified time AT&T online $168.14

I collected Ms. [VICTIM #1]’s information for the report and told her I would send her a link via Evidence.com so she could upload the screen shots of the fraudulent purchases, their amounts, times, and location. Ms. [VICTIM #1] told me she is good friends with the clerk inside of the One Stop, and that he was working on retrieving possible camera footage.

I spoke with the clerk and he allowed me to use the sales system to try and located the purchase for $59.00. We could not locate the purchase in the sales system. The clerk allowed me access to the store camera system.

I asked the clerk if the camera system time was up to date. The clerk stated that the cameras operated off of Wifi, and the time was accurate. After reviewing footage, I did not observe anyone making a purchase at the time indicated by Ms. [VICTIM #1].

I provided Ms. [VICTIM #1] with a case card, and told her I would follow up with the clerk if found anything.

I entered Ms. [VICTIM #1]’ debit card into property, and sent her the link from Evidence.com to submit her supporting documents.

My Axon 3 Body Camera was recording during the field interview, and the audio/visual file was uploaded to Evidence.com.

While at Head Quarters completing my report, Ms. [VICTIM #1] made contact with me and told me the clerk had found the purchase in the system, and that a possible suspect had used her card to purchase gasoline at the pump.

I told Ms. [VICTIM #1] I would follow up as time permitted.

Nothing further to report at this time.
