2 charged for credit card theft in Manheim Township

Police filed charges against two people for a theft in Lancaster County after an out-of-state law enforcement officer recognized them in a surveillance photo.

Alexis M. Carrasco-Oviedo, 19, and Miguel A. Carrasco-Gomez, 46, addresses unknown, are accused of taking a wallet from a Mount Joy woman and using her credit card to make a $535 at a Manheim Township store on May 15.

Township police said the card was presented a second time at the same store to make a $2,000 purchase, but it was declined.

After a surveillance photo was released to the media, authorities said a police officer in North Carolina saw a news article on the theft and recognized the suspects.

Carrasco-Ovieda and Carrasco-Gomez were each charged with theft and criminal conspiracy.

Their whereabouts are unknown.
