LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman accused of fraudulently using credit cards stolen from dozens of parked cars is now in custody in Louisville.
Brandy Lyvers, 27, was arrested in Jacksonville, Florida, in early July; she was booked in to Louisville Metro Corrections on Aug. 5.
Police believe Lyvers and an accomplice broke into numerous vehicles throughout Metro Louisville, especially the east end. "They're smart. They know what they're doing," LMPD Detective Chris Horn said in July. "We think she's working with a male accomplice who's actually breaking into the cars and then handing the credit cards over to her."
According to arrest warrants, Lyvers used stolen credit cards a number of times, including on three occasions in March and April. In each case, police say Lyvers made purchases with the stolen cards almost immediately after they were stolen. Police say Lyvers can be seen on surveillance video using the cards at numerous stores.
Lyvers is facing numerous counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, as well as theft by unlawful taking and forgery.
