Chicago woman arrested in connection with credit card theft

Police arrested a Chicago woman Monday morning in connection with forgery and unlawful use of a credit card.

The credit cards in question were stolen in October during a football practice at Foster Field in west Evanston near the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. A 9-year-old boy took a wallet from a purse during the practice and gave the wallet to his mother, the Chicago woman arrested by police, Parrott said. The wallet contained two credit cards, Parrott said.

She is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
