Pair Spent Nearly $1,000 at Coral Gables CVS With Stolen Credit Card: Police

Coral Gables police said two people were arrested for allegedly making nearly $1,000 worth of purchases in a CVS with a stolen credit card after breaking into cars.

The Coral Gables Police Department said Sharesa Janita Brunson and Quentin Edward Kemp on Saturday broke into four cars in the area, including at a Spring Chicken restaurant parking lot near the University of Miami.

While the victim was speaking to police about the theft, Brunson and Kemp went on a shopping spree with a stolen credit card, police said.

The suspects allegedly stole a bag that was left in the car parked at the restaurant. They are accused of using a credit card they found in the bag to buy $854 worth of items at a nearby CVS. They also allegedly attempted to purchase $817 worth of items at a Walgreens.

When police found Brunson, they spotted her walking outside of a Walgreens and arrested her soon after. In the vehicle, police found property belonging to the victims of the four car break-ins and receipts for the fraudulent purchases, police said.
