BOARDMAN, Ohio -

A Walmart employee is now facing charges for allegedly stealing a co-worker's credit card and using it several places.

Twenty-three-year-old Nyasia Lopez of Struthers has been indicted on misuse of a credit card and receiving stolen property. 

According to the police report, the victim, also a Walmart employee, reported on August 19 that she received a notification from her bank for two fraudulent purchases at 8:30 p.m., which was before the end of her shift.

The victim told police before her shift started, she put her wallet in her jacket pocket, which was in the deli kitchen at Walmart. 

She claims she had her drivers permit, insurance cards, Walmart employee discount card, two $15 gift cards and three dollars cash in the wallet.

The victim told police that only one worker left earlier than she did and had access to the kitchen where she kept her jacket.

According to to the report, the victim says her bank notified her that someone had attempted to use her card to withdraw $100 from an ATM at 8:25 pm, but entered the wrong pin number. The card was allegedly used two minutes later at the Sami Quik Stop on Midlothian Boulevard for $5.75 and again seven minutes later at an unspecified Dollar General for $54.95.

Boardman police investigated the fraudulent activity and have reason to believe Lopez is responsible. Lopez was arrested on a warrant on August 27.
