Back in February, Greenwich Police say a woman made several large purchases form a local retailer on Greenwich Avenue using stolen credit cards.

This week, the suspect, Amanda Banks, 29, of Springfield, IL, was extradited from Indiana where she was being held on unrelated charges to Greenwich.

Police say that Ms Banks made several large purchases form a local retailer using stolen credit cards. She left the store and was seen entering a vehicle and driving away.

Investigation determined Banks’ identity and police obtained an arrest warrant.

In October, Indiana authorities notified Greenwich Police that they had Banks in their custody on unrelated charges.

After Banks was extradited, she was charged with Criminal Impersonation, Identity Theft 3, Receipt from Illegal Use Credit Card, Greater than $500 on Revoked Payment card (2 charges), Payment Card theft (2 charges) and Larceny 4.

Her bond was set at $25,000, which she was unable to post. She is due in Stamford Superior Court on Oct 25, 2019.

“The case illustrates how Greenwich Police pursue these investigations when there are actionable leads, even going across the country to bring those responsible to justice,” Greenwich Police said in a release.
