Customers fraudulently charged $1,000 at West End trampoline park

Alexandria Police have identified a suspect allegedly responsible for the theft of two credit cards at the Get Air Trampoline Park at 340 S. Pickett Street in the West End.

An employee of the park, who has not been charged, admitted to police that he was working alone when he found two credit cards and then charged each $1,000 to his personal Cash App account.

The employee told police that on July 8 he found two credit cards that customers left behind, and then “used the credit cards to transfer money to his personal business Cash App/Square Inc. virtual wallet account,” according to a search warrant affidavit. “More specifically, (the suspect) stated that he manually entered the customers’ credit card numbers onto his Cash App/Square Inc. account using his personal cell phone.”

Both customers were initially charged less than $20 for their visits.
