Folsom police attribute quick thinking by bicycle shop employees that lead to the arrest of a suspected ID thief who had just spent $6,000 using fake credit.
A female shopper raised suspicion as she went on a shopping spree with a newly approved credit card. One purchase was a mountain bike selling for $4,200. Employees became suspicious because two weeks earlier, their store in El Dorado Hills was hit with a $5,000 fake credit purchase using the same credit line. Two days later, a different person tried to make another large purchase, which the store declined. The person was able to get away.
