Cops say a man stole a woman’s credit card and made fraudulent charges on it after he swiped it from her while she browsed Costco.
According to authorities, at around 1:30 p.m. on May 11, a 25-year-old woman was shopping at Costco on 37th Street between Second and Third Avenues when she realized that her wallet containing several credit cards was missing.
