PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Allegheny County Police say a woman stole her boss’ personal Capital One credit card and charged nearly $48,000 on it.

Investigators say 24-year-old Dominique Coleman bought everything from flat screen televisions to hair weaves, airline tickets, hotel rooms and went to every store at Monroeville Mall.

“The sheriff actually came here a couple weeks ago asking if I knew anything about it, showed me a picture of her,” Dominique Norris, a salon owner in Swissvale, said. “I just couldn’t believe it.”

Police have Coleman on surveillance tape making many of her purchases.

“We got the surveillance videos and photographs from numerous businesses throughout Allegheny County were able to identify a suspect,” Allegheny County Police Lt. Jeffrey Korczyk said.

This all happened last month and then Coleman disappeared. Her last known address was in Wilmerding.

She faces several charges including theft by deception, receiving stolen merchandise, ID theft and forgery.
