Natalie Troisi is suspected of running the same scam at dozens of stores. Posing as a shopper, she allegedly swiped wallets from store employees while they were distracted, sometimes by children she brought to the store, then used their credit cards to rack up purchases, police said But the New Jersey woman, wanted in a string of thefts spanning four states and as many months, was finally captured Friday in Hillsborough, New Jersey said Springfield Lt. Judd Brown. Troisi has been linked to crimes in Raritain, Watchung, Flemington, Green Brook, Millburn, Readington, Westfield and Union, and as far away as Whitehall, Pa., New York and Connecticut, Brown said. The 28-year-old resident of Hillsborough, NJ., got the attention of police when she allegedly took the wallets of three employees at three different stores in the Mall at Short Hills in December. One of the stolen credit cards was used at a 7-Eleven in Springfield, and detectives there used surveillance footage from the convenience store and mall shops to identify the suspect, Brown said.In the footage, detectives saw Troisi, another woman and two young children at each of the stores, Brown said. It is not clear whether Troisi is the children’s mother, or whether the other woman is being sought. Troisi again surfaced in Springfield in February, when she grabbed cash and a purse from a nail salon on Route 22 while employees were distracted painting the kids’ nails, Brown said. She used those credit cards at a few stores on Route 22 in Springfield and Union, where she bought more than $2,000 worth of merchandise. Police were able to get better surveillance footage with each crime, Brown said, but the big break came when they noticed her vehicle had a New Jersey license plate. New Jersey City detectives Nick Voorhees and Mark Mirabile sent copies of the surveillance photos to the New Jersey State Bureau of Probabtion, where officers recognized her as Troisi. Police called on Troisi to surrender for a theft in Raritan, and she turned herself in Friday, Brown said. They then informed her she was also being arrested on warrants out of Raritan, Readington, Millburn and Westfield. Hillsborough charged Troisi with theft over $500, theft by deception, credit card theft and credit card fraud. She will likely face similar charges in the other towns where she is suspected of stealing wallets or making fraudulent purchases. Troisi is being held in the Somerset County jail in lieu of $35,000 bail. Her initial court appearance has been set for June in Somerset County Superior Court. .
