Credit card theft charges lodged

PLUMSTED — An employee at Dunkin’ Donuts in Cream Ridge has been charged with committing credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Kassandra Kolb, 29, of Cookstown, was taken into custody on Dec. 6 following an investigation into fraudulent credit card purchases, according to Plumsted Police Cpl. Jason Reilly.

Police said detectives Brant Uricks and Angelo Barbieri determined Kolb was allegedly copying credit card information while she was handling customers’ orders at the store and using that information to make personal purchases online.

Police said they believe Kolb was acting alone in the thefts.

Along with members of the North Hanover and New Hanover police departments, Plumsted police officers executed a search warrant at Kolb’s residence in North Hanover.

No information was provided as to what police may have found during the search.

Following her arrest, Kolb was charged with credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. Police said she was fired from her job.

Kolb was initially placed in the Ocean County Jail, Toms River, after failing to post the $15,000 bail.

Reilly said store employees have been cooperating with the ongoing investigation.

Anyone who believes they may have had their credit card information compromised after visiting the Cream Ridge Dunkin’ Donuts is being asked to contact the Plumsted Police Detective Bureau at 609-758-1540.
