BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A Boca Raton woman, evicted from her apartment in the 3000 block of NW 5th Avenue, apparently stole her neighbor’s mail before vacating the property. In the mail was a brand new TD Ameritrade Visa card. Police say she used it all over Boca Raton.
Chantel Biamont is now charged with Grand Theft, Organized Scheme to Defraud, Fraudulent Use Of Personal Information, and Fraudulent Use of Credit Card.
According to police, Biamont took the card, activated the card, and used the card at Publix, Walgreens, Grateful J’s in Boca Raton, and Boca Surf and Sail. But it was the Boca Surf and Sail usage that ultimately did her in. It turns out TD Ameritrade alerted the victim that his card was being used shortly after Biamont took it and activated it. The victim called police. Police watched the transactions post and notified several area stores that the Visa card was being used fraudulently.
Unaware that she was being watched, Biamont attempted to exchange items at Boca Surf and Sail. While she exchanged “Billabong biker babe” shorts and “Black, Vuori Women’s Daily Leggings,” workers called Boca PD. A Detective arrested Biamont at the scene.
Chantel Biamont was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday morning and later released on $2,000 bond bending an upcoming court appearance.
