That wasn't very smart.
NYPD Cop Stole Dead Man's Credit Card to Buy Diamond Ring at Zales: Prosecutors | NBC New York
An NYPD officer is accused of stealing credit card information from a dead man she'd been asked to check on and using it to purchase a diamond ring, authorities say. The accused officer, 30-year-old Ymmacula Pierre, was on the job when she went to an apartment building on East 14th Street in Union Square last July to conduct a wellness check requested by the tenant's family, prosecutors said. It turned out the man who lived there, 65-year-old Ken Sanden, had passed away. After notifying the man's family, Pierre obtained his credit card information and then allegedly bought a $3,200 diamond ring from Zales two days later. She was arrested Tuesday after months of investigation following the credit card fraud last year.
