LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a Lincoln woman used stolen credit card data to buy more than $190,000 worth of laptop computers.

The 34-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of theft and criminal possession of a financial card. Online court records don’t show that she’s been formally charged.

A Wisconsin law enforcement agency contacted Lincoln police April 4 about credit card information from a Wisconsin business being used for purchases in Lincoln. Lincoln investigators soon learned about credit card data being stolen from business accounts in other state also being used by the same person in Lincoln. Security video from Lincoln stores show the woman buying nearly $194,000 worth of laptops.

Police say the laptops haven’t been found.
