Woman Stole Wallet and Used Credit Cards to Dine Out in Sunnyside: NYPD

Dec.10, 2019 By Allie Griffin

A 32-year-old woman’s wallet went missing while she was visiting a Sunnyside playground and later learned her credit card was used to dine out at a nearby restaurant.

The woman realized she was missing her wallet at 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 26 while inside the Thomas P. Noonan Playground, located at 42-01 Greenpoint Ave., police said. The wallet contained $20 cash and two credit cards.

Less than an hour later at 3:12 p.m., an unidentified woman used one of the 32-year-old’s credit cards to make $22.58 worth of unauthorized purchases at I Love Paraguay Restaurant, located at 43-16 Greenpoint Ave, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspect is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Hey Mac

Use the pronoun “I” when the person speaking is doing the action, either alone or with someone else. Use the pronoun “me” when the person speaking is receiving the action of the verb in some way, either directly or indirectly. Mac is correct in his usage. Your post is erroneous. Let us guess, you’re a graduate of Trump University.

This poor lady has severe mental illness. Help her, don’t judge until you walk in their shoes. I also have severe mental problems. One family member that has the means to help will do nothing. I really get so depressed. If she was in my shoes I would be there to help in anyway I could. Remember. God loves us all the same. God Bless this young lady. Not ashamed of saying my name. Its Patty.

The mentally ill people usually have no idea they are mentally ill. They who do know how have to want and want to work at getting help and better.

Years ago you Always had to show ID when using a credit card or check. You need a picture ID to get Zyrtec at the pharmacy but not to use a credit card!

Aren’t we taxpayers supporting Chirlaine D’s program to help the mentally ill? I’d like Scott Stringer to do an audit of her financials and see where the millions of dollars are going or have gone. Worthless like her husband.

She’s a local mom who is married and with an elementary school child. Not sure why her husband isn’t helping her get the help she needs. Maybe he’s causing it? Hope though she gets the help she needs as it’s a very sad situation.

@she is sick- You need to educate yourself or at least do a little research on the issue. Me and my family had to take a crash course about twenty years ago when my aunt started developing dementia. Many people suffer from “paranoia” along with a host of other disorders, they’re suspicious of everyone and everything. The nurse in the emergency room at the old Astoria General was able to pick up on my aunts “sickness” by noticing how “guarded” she was. This woman may think the food you’re providing is poisoned or tainted in some way, as for a job she may get past the interview but within days or hours or immediately after the the first stressful event, her symptoms will manifest. Ultimately costing her the job or scaring off other employees or customers.

“many people are actually offered jobs or food (whatever they are asking for) and actually deny the food or job offer or even ask for more”

Really? How many unemployed or hungry people actually turn down jobs or food? Half of them? More or less than half? Go ahead, amaze me.

I’m curious if you are just making this up or if you’re basing your statements on real data. It sounds as if you’re saying, “Don’t bother trying to help them, it’s a waste of time because most of them will refuse to be helped” and that is complete nonsense.

I was just going to say this woman was digging through the garbage on 43rd street and queens blvd by a red SUV a few weeks ago. I walked past with my daughter and she asked me if I had any hand-me-down clothes in my daughters size or if I new of a job opening where I worked. She was nice, but obviously suffering from some type of mental illness.

@She is sick...

I agree with you but please know that people have to WANT to be helped. You’d be amazed at how many people are actually offered jobs or food (whatever they are asking for) and actually deny the food or job offer or even ask for more!

Beggers can’t be choosers.

Perhaps we should card credit card users everywhere.

You use a credit card at the mega dollar stores in the area they ask for ID to verify the name on the credit card.

She is sick

This woman suffers from severe mental illness. She has been seen around Sunnyside both walking and in a red Volkswagen SUV, digging through garbage and begging for food and or employment. If you see her please call the authorities and get this woman the help and treatment she needs, before she gets herself into deeper trouble.
