An Iowa City woman has been accused of stealing credit-card information.

Sirita Williams, 42, was charged between July 12 and 19 with third-degree theft and unauthorized use of credit card.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Williams obtained stolen credit-card information and made Internet purchases at GRC*Wen by Chaz Dean and QVC.

She also paid personal bills at Mediacom, Sprint, the city of Iowa City, and Mid-American Energy.
The purchases and bills were approximately $670.20. The purchases were shipped to Williams’ address, and the bills were paid in her name.

She reportedly admitted to using the credit-card information to pay bills and make purchases but denied obtaining the information initially.

Third-degree theft and unauthorized use of a credit card not exceeding $1,000 are aggravated misdemeanors.
