(NEW ROCHELLE) Westchester County police arrested a receptionist at a New Rochelle medical practice on Wednesday night and charged her with using patients’ credit card numbers to go on an online shopping spree.
Jeanette Gomez, 24, of Soundview Avenue, Bronx, was charged in connection with two recent thefts of credit card information, which she then allegedly used to buy baby clothes online from Neiman Marcus and Old Navy. She then had the items delivered to her place of employment.
Gomez is charged with two counts of Identity Theft, two counts of Petit Larceny and two counts of Unlawful Possession of Personal Identification Information, misdemeanors.
The investigation began when a patient of the medical practice contacted county police recently after noticing an unauthorized purchase made on his credit card. County police determined that the items that were purchased were to be delivered to a medical office on Quaker Ridge Road.
