RACINE, WI – A $10,000 warrant has been issued for a woman charged with identity theft after she charged thousands of dollars on a credit card she took from an employee at Ascension-All Saints Hospital.
Diamond Little, 29, of Milwaukee, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with felony personal ID theft – financial gain. If convicted of the charge, Little faces up to 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $10,000.
According to the criminal complaint, officers with the Racine Police Department responded to a theft of credit cards report on March 30 at Ascension – All Saints Hospital, 3801 Spring St.
An employee at the hospital told the officer that her wallet was taken from her purse while she was working. It was then used to buy $2,311.15 worth of items at Best Buy, but the second transaction of $1,219.35 at Best Buy and a $650 purchase at Target were declined.
During the investigation, a Best Buy employee told police that they knew Little as a suspect in “numerous fraudulent purchases throughout Southeast Wisconsin,” the complaint reads. Little’s Facebook page matched the surveillance video.
