St. Pete police: Woman used stolen ATM card


Police are looking for a woman suspected of using an ATM card that was stolen in an armed robbery and abduction.  The ATM surveillance camera picked up three good photos.
The photos were taken around 3:00 a.m. on April 22, 2013 at the TD Bank ATM located at 22nd Avenue North and 4th Street in St. Petersburg.
The woman with long, dark curly hair can be seen wearing a pink shirt in the ATM security images.
She used an ATM card taken from the victim of an armed robbery/abduction which took place earlier that night.
According to the 55-year-old male victim, he was approached by the female and a Hispanic male outside  his residence in the 1700 block of 22nd Avenue North at about 9:00 p.m. on April 21.
The victim was mildly acquainted with the female, but did not know the male.  Still, he let them both into his home.  After midnight, the male suspect produced a knife and forced the victim into his own SUV.
The victim was forced to ride with the man and woman who took his ATM card and demanded his PIN number.
After making a withdrawal, the victim was driven back to his home where the male suspect took the victim's 1999 Ford Expedition and fled.  The female left the area in a black sedan with no other description.
The Expedition was later found burning and abandoned in the area of 28th Avenue North and 11th Street.
Detectives are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the female suspect or who may have other information about the case.  Anyone with information should call Detective Billy Crews at 727-893-7266 or leave a confidential tip at 727-892-5000.
