The following is a Press Release from the
Lake Charles Police Department:
On May 24, 2012, the victim brought her grandson to Chuck E
Cheese on E Prien Lake Rd for lunch. At approximately 1:00 p.m., she approached
another patron (approximately 30 to 40 years of age in a blue sleeveless shirt)
whom she mistakenly believed was an employee and asked her for assistance in
getting $80 from a nearby ATM.
The victim provided the woman with her bank card and PIN.
The woman left with the card and returned shortly thereafter with the requested
$80. The victim later learned that the woman had removed an additional $200
from her account without permission.
If you can identify the woman, please contact Detective Dustin Gaudet with the Lake
Charles Police Department at 337-491-1456 ext 1223.
