SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hartford woman is accused of credit card and identity theft after allegedly stealing a South Windsor resident’s credit card in November 2015.

Police arrested 31 year-old Miesha Campbell on Wednesday. According to officials, police had a warrant out for her arrest after a resident’s credit card was stolen and the credit card information was apparently “skimmed” or cloned by a suspect. Authorities say that suspect then gave the fraudulent credit card to Campbell.

Campbell allegedly also used a friend’s name and date of birth to identify herself to officers during the police investigation.

Campbell has been charged with third degree identify theft and illegal use of a credit card. She was held on $20,000 bond and expected to appear in court on Thursday, Jan. 28.
