Two people from Crystal are being summonsed to court for charging 56 transactions totaling over $5,000 to someone else's credit card.
Jaime Lynn Chapman, 36, and Jacob Alan Kauffman, 29, face felony charges for financial card fraud. If convicted, punishment includes up to 10 years in prison and/or a $20,000 fine.
In August, Minnetonka Police received a report of credit card fraud. The owner of the card told police he had applied for the Visa but had not yet received it in the mail.
The card was used 56 times in Hennepin County, with the majority of the charges in Minnetonka. It was used at Walgreen's, Cub Foods, Target, Mystic Lake Casino, and for Paypal and other online stores with the order in the name of Kauffman. The card was also used to pay a self storage bill, with the unit rented to Kauffman.
Video surveillance allegedly shows Chapman and Kauffman using the card.
