The Turlock Police Department announced that a wanted credit card thief was arrested on Aug. 4, following a Facebook tip.
The suspect, identified as Lisa Grindstaff, 47, of Turlock, was wanted for allegedly using a victim’s stolen credit card at several Turlock stores on July 29.
Turlock police were able to locate and arrest Grindstaff after investigators followed a tip that they had received from Facebook.
“The Turlock Police Department is grateful for all the support received from our community members after sharing this photo,” the Turlock Police Department posted on Facebook. “Surely, we wouldn't have identified Grindstaff as quickly as we did if it hadn't been for our faithful followers who are readily standing by, willing to fight crime alongside the men and women of the Turlock Police Department.”
Grindstaff was arrested and booked at the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on Aug. 4 on several counts of burglary, fraud, and identity theft related charges, according to the Facebook post.
