News of ID theft arrest brings more victims

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) – "I saw the story and woke up and a friend of mine was also a victim called me at the same time," said Jessi Stevenson.

In early June Stevenson saw KSLA News 12 report the arrest of Sankeyno Taylor. 

Police say he used an electronic skimming device while working the drive - thru window at McDonalds on Airline Drive.

"And the device reads the information on the tape on the credit car, and stores it. That is everything from the Person's name, account number, and other information," said Mark Natale with the Bossier City Police Department.

Stevenson said she remembers going through the drive through she saw on the news, according to police that's where she and many other credit card users became the victim of identity theft.

"He was selling the information to some individuals in Texas," said Natale.

Stevenson says she noticed the 775 dollar discrepancy on her credit card before the story aired, and when she saw the familiar drive through, she called police.

"Because I was racking my brain trying to figure out how somebody used my card when I had it," said Stevenson.

Bossier City Police have an additional 20 counts to charge Taylor with. The problem is, after he bonded out from his initial arrest, police haven't been able to get a hold of him, a very aggravating situation for his alleged victims.

"It's very frustrating to think someone can steal your money and get away with it, and of course not just my money. It's lots and lots of other people's money," said Stevenson.

 Stevenson got her money back, and filed a police report in hopes of keeping other people's information safe and to get a suspected I.D. thief off the streets, and out of drive- thru.

BOSSIER CITY POLICE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR TAYLOR WHO NOW FACES AROUND 30 COUNTS- AND POLICE ARE URGING HIM TO TURN HIMSELF IN.

   If you have any information police urge you to call Crimestoppers at 318-424-4100.
