Police: Girl stole credit card information from Flourtown Dunkin' Donuts customers

- There's a sign posted outside Flourtown Dunkin’ Donuts that reads now hiring and according to Springfield Township Police there's one employee for sure who isn't working here anymore.  On Monday, police arrested a 16-year-old girl for allegedly stealing customers' debit and credit card information when they came through the drive-thru.

"I'm disappointed but not surprised. There's people like that everywhere," said Tessa Shackelford as she came through the drive-thru.  Police say the teen who worked at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 1821 Bethlehem Pike would take a picture of customers cards or write down the number then upload the information onto fake credit cards and use them. 

Shackelford says she checks her bank statements when she doesn't use cash.

"I do online banking so I can check my accounts and if something looks different I usually check it to make sure," said Shackelford.  A victim contacted police when they noticed charges on a bill for purchases they didn't make after they used it at Dunkin’ Donuts. Investigators say the teen admitted to fraudulently using about 13 to 20 customer cards.

John Dunlop came through the drive-thru Tuesday with his son Gavin.

"Especially being a teenager doing something like this and screwing up your own life down the line. So it's a shame. It's a good community," he said. 

Springfield Township police want you to check your debit or credit card statements and call them if you notice anything usual.

"You just have to be careful anytime you go out shopping. Just check your bills occasionally," said Dunlop.

Police say the employee used the cards herself but also gave the numbers out to her friends.  They say the stolen card information was used to take Lyft rides, at SkyZone and fast food places to name a few.

They want to hear from you if you think your card has been compromised. It may have happened to you if you came through the drive-thru between June first and July 30th and if you made a purchase using your physical debit or credit card, please call police at 215-836-1606.
