2 accused of using stolen credit card

Two women have been jailed on charges of allegedly using a stolen credit card that was in a wallet removed from a car in the 700 block of Cherry Street, city police said.

Lekesha Ann Dixon, 45, of 846 Park Ave., and a homeless 22-year-old woman, Quanatalyse Roseann Smith, are accused of using Yvette Bennett’s credit card multiple times at the R&S Family Market, 604 Walnut St., and the Weis Market at 620 W. Third St. for several days beginning on Aug. 19, police said.

After Bennett reported the credit card stolen, that blocked Dixon from using it any more, so she cut the card up and threw it in the trash, police said.

Dixon and Smith face charges of forgery, theft by deception, access device fraud and conspiracy. Dixon also has been charged with theft, receiving stolen property, theft from a motor vehicle and tampering with evidence. Those charges stem from Dixon allegedly stealing Bennett’s wallet from her car and later destroying the victim’s credit card, police said.

Arraigned before District Judge Allen P. Page III, Dixon was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $15,000 bail while Smith was jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail.
