Stolen card used to buy iPod, video game

Two teens were arrested over the weekend after police said they used a debit card from a recently burglarized vehicle to purchase a video game and an iPod.

Houston resident Coalton Rashed Sims, 18, and a 17-year-old were arrested at Target in College Station after store employees called authorities with suspicions that the card - which was in a woman's name - was stolen, according to reports.

At the time of their arrests, other officers were on their way to a burglary of a vehicle report outside of Gold's Gym where the debit card had been stolen.

Police found receipts for the items in Sims' car, according to police reports.

Shoplifting generally is a misdemeanor. However, because a debit card was used to purchase the items, both teens were charged with state jail felony debit card abuse and could face up to two years incarceration.

A misdemeanor burglary of a vehicle charge could be pending, police said Sunday.
