Lockport police arrest two for credit card fraud

LOCKPORT – Lockport police arrested two women in separate cases Friday, charging each with fourth-degree grand larceny for allegedly stealing more than $1,000 from victims’ bank accounts through thee of stolen credit cards.

A male resident of Urban Park Towers, an apartment building on Main Street in Lockport, told police that Wittig was in his apartment for two hours Oct. 29 and after she left, he couldn’t find his card.
