HUDSON — A Greenport woman was charged with third-degree grand larceny, a class D felony, for allegedly using a Hudson man’s credit card for thousands of dollars in purchases, Hudson Police Chief L. Edward Moore said Tuesday.

Jada G. Hinds, 21, was arrested Nov. 12, by Hudson Police detectives, Moore said.

The investigation began Feb. 6, when police received a complaint from a city resident that an unknown person was using his credit card and had made fraudulent charges without his permission, Moore said. The investigation lasted several months.

Investigators found that Hinds had made at least $7,364 in unauthorized charges on the credit card over 27 months, Moore said.

Hinds turned herself in to police and was given appearance tickets for Hudson City Court, Moore said.

Detective Rodney Waithe was the lead investigator on the case, Moore said.
