COTTONWOOD, Ariz. -

Law enforcement authorities in northern Arizona have arrested a 33-year-old Cottonwood woman in connection to a handful of cases of credit card theft and fraud.

Natalie Olson is accused of fraud throughout the Sedona, Cottonwood, and Camp Verde areas. While she was employed at two separate eye doctor's offices, Olson allegedly would go through patient's purses when they left their personal property unattended during eye exams.

Olson would allegedly steal credit cards and IDs, and in every case, it took at least one day until the victim discovered the theft.

In the meantime, Olson would make purchases on the cards, then discard them when they no longer worked to avoid detection, YCSO says.

This went on for several months until Olson was caught trying to shoplift, and a clerk discovered the card she had was not in her name.

Video surveillance linked Olson to at least 12 cases, and more victims may be out there.

Olson faces charges including fraud schemes, trafficking stolen property, identity theft, forgery,
theft, fraudulent use of a credit card, theft of a credit card, burglary, possession of stolen property, and money laundering. Her bond is set at $28,000.
