PRESCOTT, AZ (CBS5) -

A Cottonwood woman is in jail in connection with 12 theft cases in three Arizona communities, police said.

Authorities said Natalie Olson, 33, would steal credit cards and identification from patients' purses when she worked in at least two eye doctor's offices in the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona.

Victims did not realize the theft until at least a day later, giving Olson time to use the cards for purchases at stores in the area, the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said. 

Sheriff's detectives said several times Olson would buy cash debit cards with the stolen credit cards and then discard the stolen cards to avoid being detected.

For at least the past two months, Olson used the cards at various stores, including Walmart, Giant Gas, Walgreens and Webers IGA, YCSO detectives said.

A break-in case came when she was caught at Walmart placing items she had not scanned into a bag at self-checkout, sheriff's deputies said. When clerks checked the credit card Olson was using, they found it was not in her name and called law enforcement, YCSO said.

Olson was arrested July 11 after police examined surveillance video and a paper trail of evidence.

Olson was booked into jail on charges of fraud schemes, trafficking stolen property, identity theft, forgery, theft, fraudulent use of a credit card, burglary and money laundering, among other charges. 

Her bond was set at $28,000.
