Westport detectives Christmas Day arrested a Hartford woman on three warrants at the Cromwell Police Department for fraudulent purchases that racked up more than $7,000 on stolen Westport credit cards, police said.

According to Lt. David Farrell, the arrest of Shavonne Coachman, 32, stemmed from an extensive identity theft investigation by the Westport Detective Bureau into credit cards stolen in October from burglarized Westport motor vehicles. Coachman was the recipient of those cards, which were used in the Hartford area, Farrell said.

From the three warrants, she was charged with a total of five counts of third-degree identity theft, five counts of conspiracy to commit identity theft in the third degree, conspiracy to commit the illegal use of a credit card and failure to appear on another charge in New Britain.

Coachman is scheduled to appear on the Westport charges in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, Jan. 4. Bond was set at $11,550 on all charges.
