ID Thief Helpfully Poses for Sam's Club Card

You've ripped off someone's credit cards, gone on a $2,000 spree at various suburban stores and the cops still haven't caught you. Help 'em out!!

That was apparently the thinking of one woman, who in the course of using a stolen credit card got so swept up in the giant olive jars at Sam's (we guess) that she dutifully posed for a photo to get her membership card.

We hope she enjoys her four-pound bottles of ketchup, because now police have a nice picture of her to pass around.

Her next move, we imagine: Using that stolen credit card to go wild at Glamour Shots.

The suspect is described as a black female, 30-40 years of age, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 and weighing 160-170 pounds. She is said to look like she does in the friggin' picture she had taken.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to her conviction, so if her face rings any bells, call 713-222-8477 or go to crimestoppers.org.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
