Latoya Credle, 27, of Ansonia, turned herself into Southington Police on July 19, at 7 p.m., after learning of an active warrant for her arrest concerning an incident of stolen credit cards while she was employed as a personal caretaker.

The warrant alleges that Credle took the victim’s bank credit card and made numerous unauthorized purchases with the card. The transactions were scattered at several locations in the state between June 2, 2016 and June 6, 2016. The total for the unauthorized transactions is  $1131.81.

In addition, there were two “super check advances” from the victim’s credit account even though the victim reported that she did not know the credit account existed. The victim reported that she never had a credit card or checks issued for the account. The two check advances were for $800 and $900, totaling $1700.

Credle was processed and charged with fourth degree larceny, credit card theft, criminal impersonation, and illegal use of a credit card. She was released on a $2,500 bond and given a court appearance date at Bristol Superior Court on Aug. 1, 2016.
