A 26-year-old woman has been charged in a case involving fraudulent use of a credit card to buy gas, Bloomfield Township authorities said Thursday.

On March 16, a Bloomfield Hills resident told police he had received a phone notification that his card was being used at a gas station in Pontiac, investigators said in a statement. The 21-year-old contacted the business, where an attendant took pictures of the person using his card, according to the release.

Dynesha Williams was charged with fraudulent use of a financial transaction device. She was arraigned at 48th District Court in Bloomfield Hills and released on personal bond.

The Pontiac woman said she “bought the card from a person in her neighborhood for $15 to get $30 worth of gas,” police reported.
