Use of delivery driver’s stolen credit cards leads to arrest of 3
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The use of a delivery driver’s stolen credit cards at a local Target led to the arrest of three people Monday.
Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Lake Nora Drive to investigate an armed robbery around 1:30 p.m. There, they spoke to the victim, who said a woman with a handgun greeted him at the apartment he was delivering too.
The woman reportedly directed the victim inside, handed the gun to a man and they demanded that he empty his pockets. The driver handed over his wallet, which contained cash and credit cards, and was then let go.
When the victim called to cancel his credit cards, the creditors reportedly told him that the card was actively being used at a nearby Target.
When officers responded to the Target, they reviewed surveillance footage and spotted the suspects getting into their vehicle. Officers then set up in the area of the robbery to try and catch them. Shortly after, the suspects drove up and officers observed them walking into the apartment with Target bags.
A warrant was obtained and police arrested the three suspects, including two 18-year-olds and a 26-year-old. Officers also located the victim’s stolen property.
The 18-year-olds were preliminarily charged with robbery and the 26-year-old was charged with credit card fraud. All three were interviewed by detectives and allegedly admitted to having involvement with the crime.
