LEOMINSTER -- Police allege a Leominster High School student stole her teacher's credit card and racked up more than $1,350 in fraudulent charges at local stores, according to court documents.
Candy Quero, 17, was summoned to Leominster District Court on Friday, where she was arraigned on charges stemming from the alleged July credit card theft.
The teacher reported receiving a call from the credit card company about her account being charged at several Leominster locations during the day and told Officer Frank Hazelrigg she believed her card was stolen during morning classes at LHS.
The teacher allegedly recognized Quero's description from a store owner where the card was used, Hazelrigg wrote in report.
"The owner stated that it had been (used) and that two young girls had used it," he wrote. "She further informed (the teacher) that she had asked the two suspects about the signature not matching on the card, and that the young girl who had signed it had stated that she had injured her hand."
A fellow student later in the day came into the police station to tell Hazelrigg that Quero had invited her to go shopping and Quero allegedly bought her clothing, perfume and baby clothes.
The witness brought the items Quero allegedly bought her to the station after she heard the credit card was stolen, Hazelrigg reported. Detective Thomas M. Cuddahy wrote in a report he went to Quero's Crossman Avenue home, where she answered the door and first denied knowing anything about the stolen card but then allegedly admitted she took it from her teacher's purse.

Quero then allegedly turned over the purchased items to police. She is charged with larceny of a credit card, credit card fraud over $250 and larceny more than $250 by a single scheme. Judge John J. Curran Jr. released Quero on personal recognizance bail Friday and she is due in court Oct. 30 for a pretrial hearing.
