Police identify fraud suspect

Conway police have identified a woman arrested in connection with a recent credit card fraud investigation after police released images taken from surveillance video earlier in the week.

Nicole Stevens, 42, of Plumerville is suspected of stealing a credit card on Sept. 3 and using it to make unauthorized purchases at four local businesses.

LaTresha Woodruff, public information officer with the Conway Police Department, said authorities with the Morrilton Police Department and the Conway County Sheriff’s Office were “instrumental” in helping to make the identification, “as both agencies are familiar with (Stevens).”

Woodruff said Stevens has no connection to the victim and that the credit card was stolen from the interior of a vehicle.

Stevens is currently being held in jail on unrelated charges, but is expected to be charged with credit card fraud.
