Gloucester Police/Fire: City police probe credit card fraud

Gloucester Police/Fire

Police said a Thatcher Road woman walked into the police station Monday at 10:02 a.m. to report credit card fraud.

The woman told police she was notified by her credit card company of charges greater than $3,000 that she claimed were fraudulent. The charges occurred this past Saturday, she said.

The case has been forwarded to detectives.

Police are looking into another in a series of license plate thefts.

According to the police log, a Cherry Street woman reported her plate was stolen from her vehicle Tuesday at 7:50 a.m.

At 8:17 a.m. Tuesday, an Elwell Street woman reported a past burglary. Police are investigating.

Police attempted to serve a Young Avenue resident with a warrant for her arrest Tuesday at 6:41 a.m., but the landlord said the woman no longer lives at the address.

A Butman Avenue woman phoned police Monday just past 10 a.m. to report that dogs had apparently killed her chickens.
