Police blotter: Huntington woman charged with using stolen credit card
The following information was provided by reports filed with the Huntington Police Department:
FRAUDULENT USE OF AN ACCESS DEVICE: Rebecca Ellen Black, 33, of Huntington, was charged with felony fraudulent use of an access device and misdemeanor telephone harassment earlier this week.
An officer was dispatched to a business in the 1500 block of 6th Avenue on Monday evening.
Once on the scene, a 24-year-old Huntington woman reported she lost her wallet Sunday morning, and, since that time, she had received a call from a representative from her credit card company who asked about multiple charges made on her account while her wallet was missing.
The woman said several charges were made without her permission at businesses within city limits. Officers reviewed security footage from the businesses and discovered two women made the fraudulent purchases.
Charges still are pending against one of the women, and a background check revealed a warrant for the arrest of the other woman.
BATTERY: A 55-year-old man reported he and another man became involved in a verbal argument Monday evening in the 2500 block of Marcum Terrace when the man punched him in the face multiple times. The man suffered cuts to the underside of his jaw, but he refused medical treatment.
