MONROE, CT — A 55-year-old Monroe man told police someone made fraudulent charges on Walmart.com using his two stolen bank debit cards on Nov. 13, after he lost his wallet during a visit to the Bank of America branch in Trumbull.
Among its contents, his wallet contained a Bank of America and a Wells Fargo debit card, police said.
He noticed the charges on his cards later in the day and immediately called his banks to cancel both accounts and cards, before money was withdrawn for the purchases. He also contracted the major credit bureaus to put a freeze on his credit, police said, adding he suffered no financial loss.
A police report was needed for the credit freeze, so a complaint was made Thursday.
Crash at Cross Hill and Elm
Police responded to a two-vehicle-crash at the intersection of Elm Street and Cross Hill Road Thursday evening.
At approximately 6:10 p.m., a 43-year-old Monroe woman was driving east on Cross Hill in her purple 2015 GMC Acadia, stopped at the stop sign at the intersection with Elm Street, and continued straight before hitting a black 2017 Audi A3 in the intersection, according to the report.
Police said the driver of the Audi, a 16-year-old juvenile female from Monroe, was heading north on Elm, stopped at the stop sign at the intersection of Cross Hill, then continued straight when she was hit by the Acadia.
Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Service personnel responded to the scene, but both drivers refused medical transport, police said.
The Audi was towed by Jim’s Auto due to disabling damage.
The woman who drove the GMC Acadia was issued a written warning for failure to grant the right-of-way at an intersection.
