Officers were contacted on Nov. 25, by Northbrook Court security to investigate two women suspected of using a fraudulent credit card for purchases about $2,300 at Lord & Taylor, according to police.
One of the women bought items by telling an employee she forgot her store credit card, and provided an out of state driver’s license as identification so the store could locate a Lord & Taylor credit card with the name provided on the license, police say.
Another woman with the first shopper then used the credit card information to make an additional purchase, according to police. Then the two women left the store, entered a vehicle and left the area, police say.
Store security contacted the police to report the suspicious transaction. Northbrook officers were then able to locate the individual by phone whose driver’s license was used to complete the transaction and
she informed officers that she had not authorized anyone to use her credit card and that she had the actual card still in her possession, according to police.
An APERN message about the Northbrook Court incident was sent to surrounding police departments, and later that day another Lord & Taylor contacted the Northbrook store to report the two subjects were trying to use the false credit information to purchase more merchandise, according to the police report. Schaumburg detained the two women until Northbrook officers eventually reached and placed the women under arrest, according to police.
Sharon M. Louie, 50, of Chicago was charged with felony identity theft, and Cydney M. Collins, 20, of Carpentersville was charged with felony theft, police say.
