Lacey police are looking for a woman who they believe stole a debit card from the middle school at Community Christian Academy last week.
The theft happened some time between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. May 24 at the school on Park Center Drive Northeast, Sgt. Jaime Newcomb said Tuesday. The card was used 15 minutes later at a Safeway on Martin Way East, he said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lacey police at 360-459-4333 or Crime Stoppers of South Sound at 800-222-8477.
This was the second theft in the area, Newcomb added.
On May 23, a woman allegedly stole a purse from Northwest Christian High School that contained a debit card and credit card. The theft happened about 11:30 a.m., but it wasn’t reported until about 9 p.m. That’s when the purse’s owner discovered fraudulent charges, he said.
Newcomb said police have a “person of interest” in that case.
