Seeking Identity - Theft; Access Device Fraud



The individual in the photographs is believed to have used a bank card stolen from a purse that was in an office in the HACC Midtown 1 building. 

On April 6, 2018, the victim reported the theft to Harrisburg Police after being notified by her bank about possible fraudulent purchases made with her bank card. The victim then checked her purse and discovered that her wallet containing her I.D. and bank card was missing, in addition to her checkbook, a small tan Coach change purse, and a make-up kit. The victim believed that the theft most likely occurred between 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on the previous day, April 5.

The victim also notified school security, which had a report of a female running in the building the day of the theft. One of the victim’s co-workers had observed an unknown person run past her office door. She described the individual as a black female, 18-24 years old, about 5’4”, with a thin-to-medium build. The female was wearing a dark gray/black puffy coat, and straight-legged blue jeans. The female’s hair was either in a ponytail or partially pulled back with something beaded.

The suspect made nine purchases with the victim’s card at local businesses. The victim provided Officers with information regarding the authorized transactions. The Officers were able to get footage of one of the transactions. The suspect was a light-skin black male, in his early-to-mid 20s. He was wearing a black puffy vest with a hood and gray long-sleeved shirt, as well as glasses. He had a thin-to-medium build and when he pushed back his hood, braids could be seen.

If you have information regarding the identity of the suspect, please contact Harrisburg Bureau of Police at (717) 558-6900 or submit a tip to CrimeWatch.
