Thieves ran up more than $10,000 in charges at Sak’s Fifth Avenue and the Apple Store in Greenwich within hours of stealing a Norwalk woman’s credit and debit cards, according to Darien police.
The woman was at a restaurant between 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and left her wallet at her table when she went to get her order, according to the report.
A short while later she got a call from Chase Bank about suspicious charges made on her card, according to the report.
The first charge, at 3 p.m., on the victim’s Visa Mastercard was for $3,340 at Sak’s Fifth Avenue in Greenwich, followed almost immediately by charges for $796, $805, and $796 in quick succession at the Apple Store, according to the report.
At 3:30 p.m., another charge on a Visa card for $3,609 was made at Sak’s Fifth Avenue, according to the report, followed shortly by a similar charge on a BMW credit card, which was turned down.
Also taken in the black Michael Kors’ wallet were department store charge cards from Kohl’s and Macy’s, according to the report.
Darien detectives are working with Apple Loss Prevention and restaurant management to recover available surveillance footage, according to Darien Police Sgt. Jeremiah Marron.
