NPSO: Natchitoches woman charged with identity theft

Posted: Updated:

NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Natchitoches woman arrested after using a Texas woman's credit card to pay a traffic citation.

A Natchitoches woman who used a Texas lady's credit card to pay a traffic citation in Rapides Parish has been arrested by Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Detectives 

On March 5, Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office Deputies contacted NPSO after a Fort Worth, TX. woman reported that her credit card had been used to pay a $254.00 traffic citation in Rapides Parish.

During the investigation, RPSO identified Kimberly D. Solitaire, 29, of Natchitoches as the person who used the credit card number.

NPSO Detectives learned while the credit card owner was traveling through the Natchitoches area, she stopped at a local business. While she was there, the victim handed the cashier her credit card for several minutes while making purchases and fueling her vehicle. Detectives said they believe the cashier documented the card number.

As a result of the investigation, NPSO Detectives arrested Solitaire on March 7, and charged her with one count of Identity Theft and one count of Illegal Transmission of Monetary Funds.

NPSO said Solitaire is awaiting bond in Natchitoches Parish Detention Center and will be transferred to Rapides Parish.

Detectives said the public should remember to always keep credit cards in view while making purchases and never leave cards in possession of another person.
