A Dothan fast food worker was arrested after police say she took pictures of customer debit cards and tried to use them for internet purchases.
Da’Kia Rochelle Cooper, 18, is being charged with identity theft.
Dothan Police Sgt. Tim Mullis said Cooper worked at a fast food restaurant on Montgomery Highway and was given access to customers’ debit cards.
She allegedly took pictures of the cards with her cell phone to use later.
Mullis said she was caught when she tried to buy something online with a debit card number, but was stopped because the purchase required two-part authentication. Cooper was arrested on Tuesday.
The investigation is still in progress and the investigators try to track down other victims.
Cooper’s bond was set at $15,000.
