Woman accused of using stolen credit card

A Fruita woman was arrested Thursday after she allegedly stole a credit card and used it to purchase lingerie for her job at Grand Junction’s newly opened strip club.

Oshay Miranda Foster, 23, 986 Moore’s Diamond Drive, was advised in court Friday that she could be charged with identity theft, criminal impersonation, unlawful possession of a financial transaction device and second-degree forgery. She is free from the Mesa County Jail on $7,500 bond.

Grand Junction police learned that three corsets were purchased with a stolen credit card, and surveillance photos from one of the locations showed the buyer had a tattoo on the back of her right leg, according to an arrest affidavit. The affidavit didn’t indicate where the items were bought.

Based on the type of clothes purchased, officers believed the suspect may work at Fantasy, 2258 Colex Drive, which opened last Saturday, the affidavit said.

Officers responded to the club Thursday night and spoke with the manager, who told them that female employees who serve alcohol wear corsets or bikinis. The manager then pointed to two women standing near the bar, one of whom had a tattoo on the back of her right leg that appeared to match the one in the surveillance photo, the affidavit said.

Officers spoke with the woman, Foster, who admitted to buying the corsets with a credit card she “found,” the affidavit said.

“I’m not stupid. I know you guys know it was me. Why else would you be here talking to me?” the affidavit quoted Foster as telling the officers.
