Weedsport woman admits using stolen credit cards to ‘get drugs’

A Weedsport woman pleaded guilty to two felonies Tuesday for using stolen credit cards in Cayuga County.

Brittany Tansley admitted to two counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. During her plea, the 25-year-old told Judge Mark Fandrich that she used two stolen credit cards in December 2015 to “purchase alcohol to get drugs.”

“I ended up with stolen credit cards,” Tansley said, noting that someone else gave her the cards to use. “I knew it wasn’t mine, but I used it anyway.”

According to the Auburn Police Department, Tansley used the credit cards at two locations. First, on Dec. 6, 2015, she used a debit card at the Speedway convenience store located at 68 North St. Then, the next day, she used a credit card at 315 Genesee St.

In exchange for her pleas of guilty, Tansley will likely be sentenced to five years probation. As part of her agreement, she will also have to pay around $270 in restitution and successfully complete felony drug court.
