Provo police seeking 2 women who stole, then used ATM card

SHARE Provo police seeking 2 women who stole, then used ATM card

Police are looking for two women in conjunction with an ATM card that was stolen May 17 and used roughly 20 times in a two-day period.

Provo police detective David Moore said the women, both about 20, approached a Brigham Young University student as she was entering her car in the Food 4 Less parking lot on University Parkway near midnight."This girl comes to the car and asks what time it is," the victim, 23, said Wednesday.

She said the two asked for a ride to Raintree Apartments, about a block away. The victim said she drove them to the back parking lot at the complex.

As they were leaving the car, one woman partially re-entered the car holding pepper spray. She demanded the victim's wallet and keys. The woman handed over her wallet but not her keys.

One woman then sprayed the pepper spray as the victim turned her head. The two fled into Raintree Apartments, while the victim went home, canceled her ATM card and called police. Even though she canceled her ATM card, the two used it roughly 20 times in Provo, Orem, Salt Lake and Las Vegas.

Approximately 20 minutes after the robbery, ATM hidden cameras at the BankOne in Orem captured a woman using the machine multiple times. The two were also caught on camera at the 7-Eleven store on Columbia Lane in Provo.

The description police have of the two women matches the footage from the bank and 7-Eleven store photos, Moore said. Police are not sure how the two obtained the victim's personal identification number.

Anyone with information about the two is encouraged to call Provo detectives.
