Just because your co-worker steals your credit card doesn’t mean he’s going to rack up as much in charges as possible.
Joel Rubin of Plainville, CT, was apprehended after he tried to use a fellow employee’s stolen credit card a second time.
After stealing the card from his co-worker’s locker at the unnamed retail establishment, police say Rubin made a single, small purchase to test that the transaction would go through without a problem.
He then made an $11 second purchase, but made the mistake using his own store discount card to save a few dollars on the transaction.
Police are charging Rubin with third-degree identity theft, two counts of credit card theft, and receipt of illegal goods.
