A woman was charged Nov. 29 after she allegedly used a forged credit card to purchase merchandise at the Coral Ridge Mall, according to a complaint by Coralville police.

Police said Melissa Zehr, 28, allegedly used a credit card at Dillard's on Nov. 22 that had been altered, making the magnetic strip on the back of the card link to another person's account information. Zehr allegedly purchased more than $1,300 in merchandise with the card, the report said.

Credit-card forgery in an amount over $1,000 but less than $10,000 is a Class-D felony.
