Westlake police are looking for a man who used an Olmsted Township woman’s credit card to buy $150 worth of gift cards.

The woman dropped her credit card on Jan. 30 at the Speedway gas station on Dover Center Road in Westlake.

The suspect found it and used the card to buy gift cards at that gas station.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to call Westlake police at (440) 871-3311.

    So I guess the person taking the card did not notice he was not a woman?

      Most people barely pay attention to any of that. Swipe, move on. Next.

      • Joe Smith

        Yep and thats going to make them have to eat that 150 bucks.

          You can always tell which clerks had their wrists slapped for not double bagging, not checking credit card ID, or accepting phony currency.

          They’re the ones taking all the precautions to heart after the cow has already left the barn.

        No they don’t. I don’t even sign my cards and no one has checked my id except Lowes in over 2 years

          At least put check ID in the signature spot as if it is blank, if someone gets a hold of it and signs your name in the blank when a store compares the signature on the receipt to the signature on the card they will match perfectly.

          • Jeff

    Good thing he’s wearing a hat, don’t want him to catch a cold.

    At speedway you swipe your own card not the cashier, and you don’t even have to sign if it’s under $50. This is why I never liked the fact that stores let you swipe your own card. I refuse to do it myself and make the cashier do it. It is their job after all.
