During the investigation, officers learned that a restaurant patron had her purse stolen inside the restaurant, and that her credit cards were then used inside the restaurant.
Officers viewed video showing Zhane Flynn, 18, of 310 Putnam Ave, Hamden, using the complainant’s credit cards to purchase tokens for the video games inside the restaurant.
Flynn was subsequently taken into custody and charged with two counts of credit card theft, two counts of illegal use of a credit card, second-degree identity theft and sixth-degree larceny.
She was released on a promise to appear in court Dec. 12.
It was later determined that Flynn also was wanted by the New Haven Police, and she was turned over to their custody.
