Police officers from the 103rd district in Jamaica and Transit District 20 are looking for a man who allegedly stole a woman’s credit cards from inside the Jamaica Center Parsons/Archer subway station last month.
The 51-year-old was inside the train station around midday on Tuesday March 8 when she realized her purse wallet was open and her credit cards were missing.
An unknown person was captured on a surveillance camera at the Jimmy Jazz clothing store at 163-23 Jamaica Ave. later that day, making approximately $1,000 in unauthorized credit card purchases using the victim’s credit cards, police said.
The suspect fled the store heading east on Jamaica Avenue. He has his hair cropped short and was last seen wearing a black jacket over a Brooklyn Nets sweatshirt.
