Credit card used fraudulently at gas station

A woman called police Sunday after realizing someone had used one of her credit cards at a gas station in Conway.

The 23-year-old woman told officer Steven Culliford it was possible she either left her wallet at the checkout counter at Target or dropped it out in the parking lot the day prior, according to an incident report.

According to the woman’s statement, she went straight home from shopping at Target on Saturday and “didn’t think much about where here wallet was due to not needing it.”

However, she received an alert Sunday from Capital One regarding a charge to her account. The $32.58 charge was made at the J-Square Exxon gas station at 7:42 a.m. Sunday, the report states.

The woman looked for her wallet after seeing the alert but was unable to find it, the report states. According to the report, she also had a Centennial Bank debit card, Target credit card and a Cash App card in the missing wallet. She has since canceled all the cards.
