An Aurora woman, who was wanted on a warrant for allegedly using a debit card that was not hers, was arrested on Thursday by the Kendall County Sheriff's Office.
Kendall County Jail logs show 44 year-old Julia Ruiz of Wermes Ave. in Aurora is charged with three counts of Use of a Counterfeited, Forged, Expired, Revoked or Unissued Credit or Debit Card. She was booked into the Kendall County Jail in Yorkville around 3:55 a.m.
Sheriff's officials say Ruiz was taken into custody during a contact while deputies were investigating an unrelated case on Thursday.
Ruiz' arrest stems from a case investigated by Yorkville Police. Police officials tell WSPY that police took a report of a lost debit card at a business in the 1200 block of N. Bridge St. in Yorkville on September 16th of 2018.
On September 15th and on September 16th of 2018, fraudulent charges were allegedly made on the card at two businesses. Kendall County Court records show each of the three transactions were for less than $300 each, according to the charge statute. Each charge is a Class 4 felony.
Police began an investigation and on June 25th of this year, the investigation was completed and the Kendall County State's Attorney's Office filed charges on July 17th.
Ruiz has since posted bond and was appointed a public defender.
