LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Tuesday, WDRB told you about 35-year-old Karyn Merida and the crimes police say she's committing.
On the very same day we told you about them, they said she was at it again.
On Tuesday, authorities say 35-year-old Karyn Merida, and a Louisville man they believe to be named Harry Hayden, were caught on camera pulling into a Lexington Speedway convenience store.
Lexington police tell WDRB that Merida used a stolen credit card to purchase nearly $1,500 in gift cards and fuel.
The wallet was stolen from the St. Joseph East Office Park in Lexington earlier that day, police said.
It's the same crime St. Matthews Police say has happened at doctor's offices in the Louisville area.
"In my case the purse was located in a filing cabinet. She went in the filing cabinet and got the wallet out. Immediately went out and started using the credit cards," says Detective Harvey Hunt with the St. Matthews Police Department.
Police say Karen Merida has already hit Norton Suburban Hospital, and later used the credit cards stolen there to buy gift cards from CVS pharmacy.
"In Jeffersontown, she hit an office in the Industrial Park. Louisville Metro has a case against her that's currently pending," Detective Hunt said.
Karen Merida is also on the run. She was indicted in Fayette County in July for theft, and for being in possession of burglary tools. She failed to appear in court and a warrant was issued. Police have been looking for her ever since then.
Louisville police arrested her in August for theft, but under her alias name of Julia Lambert. She was released after serving 10 days behind bars, and continues to now pop up on surveillance cameras using stolen cards, police said.
"She's a little bit older. She's nicely dressed, but she can moved in and out of doctor's offices basically unnoticed," said Detective Hunt.
Authorities say the vehicle the pair may be driving is a newer model, black Jeep Wrangler.
If you have any information on where they may be, please give St. Matthews Police a call at (502) 893-9000 or Louisville Metro Police at (502) 574-LMPD.
