A Warrenton woman is accused of using a family member’s credit card without permission and making over $600 in purchases.
The transactions were made March 26 and April 8 at a number of local businesses, according to police. The credit card also was allegedly used to pay a $235 bill to Charter Communications.
Michelle L. Lato, 39, of the 700 block of Steinhagen, was charged last week with felony fraudulent use of a credit device. The allegations were reported to police May 19 after the victim discovered the fraud.
Lato admitted to cleaning her family member’s house and took the credit card, according to a probable cause statement.
