Gum-chewing Smoker Tries to Use Someone Else's Credit Card

Fraudulent purchase of two cartons of cigarettes, one pack of gum is rejected at Upper Milford mini-market, troopers say.

This much we know about one particular credit card thief: He or she smokes and likes to chew gum.

Police may know more. Presuming the Upper Milford Township mini-market where fraudulent purchases recently were attempted had a surveillance camera, they may even have the suspect's description. But for now, we're likely just talking about a gum-chewing smoker.

According to state police at Fogelsville, someone attempted to make a credit card purchase at 5:01 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Hess station, 4002 Chestnut St. The person wanted to buy two cartons of cigarettes and a pack of gum totaling $121.84. However, the transaction was rejected because it was determined the card had been stolen.

The customer fled without the merchandise, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 610-395-1438.
