Former employee charged with fraud for unauthorized use of credit card

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A woman has been charged with fraud for allegedly making unauthorized purchases on a Menard's credit card, according to court records.

The owner of Spartan Trailers contacted St. Joseph County Police on January 9, 2019 to report unauthorized charges on the company's Menard's contractor credit card.

There were multiple purchases with the credit card that were not authorized, reports said.

Some were made online but one was made at the Menard's in Mishawaka on November 9, 2018 for $7.03, reports said.

Police obtained photographs and surveillance video from the purchase.

The surveillance showed a woman purchase Lil Chub Sausages and a USB car charger, according to the probable cause affidavit.

On January 15, the surveillance video was shown to the owner of the business that reported the unauthorized charges.

The person identified the woman as Leesa Doczy, 49, a former employee, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Doczy was charged with one count of fraud in March 2019.

She was arrested on Tuesday and is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday.
