Police: Hungry Troy Credit Card Thief Visits 6 Fast Food Joints

TROY (WWJ) – Authorities are looking for a credit card thief with an appetite for fast food.

According to Troy police, the card in question was reported stolen by the daughter of a Brookdale Retirement Home resident. The wallet, which was found lying on a bathroom floor, was also missing $45 in cash.

Over the course of three days, investigators say the card was used toward nearly $70 in purchases at a half-dozen fast food joints — including Burger King, Popeye’s and Wendy’s restaurants in Warren, a KFC in Detroit and two area Tim Horton’s locations.

The thief apparently didn’t plan to flee too far, as he also bought $1 in gas with the card in Hazel Park, according to police.

The perpetrator is wanted on a charge of credit card fraud. No suspects have been named or described.

  1. Credit card payments at the gas pump typically ring up as a $1 hold charge at the time of purchase, with the final total going through within the next few business days. I’m surprised you guys didn’t realize that!

  2. CHARGES IDENTIFY PERP AS ANOTHER DEGENERATE DEMOCRAT!
