An 88-CRIME tip led to the arrest Wednesday of Cynthia Morgan in  connection with the use of a stolen credit card.

Tucson Police Department robbery detectives detained Morgan, 44, near South 12th Avenue and West Ajo Way, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a police  spokesman.

Morgan was arrested and is facing charges of forgery and fraudulent use of a credit card, Widmer said. She was booked into the Pima County jail.

On May 29, the cedit card was stolen during a robbery near East Pima Street and North Alvernon Way, said Widmer.

Later that day, the stolen card was used at a Shell Gas Station at 3902 E. Grant Road by a woman captured on a surveillance camera.

The woman was described as being 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 220 pounds. She had black hair, and a tattoo on her right wrist.

She was last seen wearing a red shirt with the word “CATS” on the front.

Detectives are continuing their investigation into the robbery, said Widmer.
