According to the report, the victim noticed the charges on April 13 that came from a WaWa gas station on Federal Highway in Stuart.

The woman noticed the exact vehicle that the suspect was driving pull up to a pump for gas.  A man then hopped out of the vehicle and start pumping.

As he did that, he also threw several credit cards into the trash.
