Couple charged with using stolen bank card

Paul Garrobo and Elizabeth Gilbert


SAFFORD — This month, a couple was arrested on charges of using a stolen bank card, and a welfare check by Safford Police officers led to a warrant arrest.

Monday night, April 9, a man and a woman reportedly found a lost wallet in the Walmart parking lot. Removing a bank card from the wallet, they used the card to buy more than $150 worth of items at Walmart and Walgreens.

According to a police report, the woman was seen by Walmart surveillance cameras picking up and going through the wallet. She then took the wallet into the women’s restroom, where police later found it in a trash can and returned it to its owner.

Cameras caught the couple buying items with the bank card. They reportedly made two transactions at Walmart, for $64 and $78, and a third at Walgreens for $15.

The man was later identified as Paul Garrobo Jr., 25. On Thursday, April 12, Garrobo and Elizabeth Gilbert, 30, were arrested by Safford Police and booked into jail. Garrobo was charged with receipt of anything of value obtained by fraudulent use of a credit card and conspiracy, and Gilbert with credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.
