Greenwich Police say Amanda Banks, 29, of Springfield, Illinois was taken into custody in Indiana and extradited to Connecticut to face numerous charges on Thursday, Oct. 10.

Police say a woman made several large purchases from a local retailer using stolen credit cards in February 2019.

The subsequent investigation identified Banks as the suspect, prompting police to obtain a warrant for her arrest.

Banks faces the following charges as per the warrant:

  • Theft of payment card (two counts)
  • Illegal use of payment card (two counts)
  • Illegally receiving goods or services by unlawful use of a payment card
  • Criminal impersonation
  • Third-degree identity theft
  • Fourth-degree larceny

Banks was unable to post her $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, Oct. 25.

“This case illustrates how Greenwich Police will pursue these investigations when there are actionable leads, even going across the country to bring those responsible to justice,” said GPD officials.
