Employee Buys Personal Plane Tickets on Company Credit Card

In a separate incident, police say a woman tried to make a withdrawal from an account that was not hers.

The following information is from the Northbrook Police Department. An arrest is not an indication of guilt.

Identity theft

Marie A. Wallace, 53, of the 1000 block of Union St. in Brooklyn, NY, presented a fraudulent California ID card in the 4200 block of Dundee Road June 28 and was attempting to withdraw money from an account that had been flagged due to identity theft activity. In addition to the fraudulent ID, she also had a Visa check card in the same name as the California ID, which was also determined to be fraudulent.

Officer’s contacted the original cardholder who advised them that her credit card had been compromised earlier in the month and she did not authorize anyone to use her personal information, nor the bank account. The defendant was placed under arrest for identity theft and turned over to the Cook County Sheriff for a bond hearing.  

Deceptive practices

Someone has been electronically accessing a Northbrook company’s checking account to make payments to Sprint. These transactions occurred from late 2013 through the spring of 2014. 

Credit card fraud

The complainant related that a former employee used a company-issued credit card to make personal purchases, including for airline tickets and other personal purchases.

Driving with a suspended license

Billy D. Coleman, 56, of the 7500 block of Winchester Ave. in Chicago, was stopped by officers at Willow Road and Ravine Way at 3:30 p.m. July 2. Officers learned that his driver’s license was suspended. He was placed under arrest for driving with a suspended license, released on $1,500 bond and given a July 21 court date.
