Jessica Esposito and Olando Thompson

On January 30, 2024, League City Police arrested 33-year-old Jessica Esposito of Webster and 33-year-old Olando Thompson of League City in connection with a credit card fraud case.

Esposito has been charged with Fraudulent Use/Possession of Identifying Information ($20,000 Bond) and Credit/Debit Card Abuse – Elderly ($20,000 Bond). Thompson faces charges of Fraudulent Use/Possession of Identifying Information ($15,000 Bond) and Unlawful Carrying Weapon ($2,500 Bond).

The arrest followed a report by an elderly female to Officer Keith on January 30, stating that an unknown person had used her credit card information for an online purchase at a retail store in League City, TX. Officer Keith then alerted the store’s management, requesting them to notify him when the suspect attempted to pick up the order.

On January 31, 2024, at approximately 2:15 p.m., store management informed Officer Keith that a female, later identified as Jessica Esposito, had arrived at the store in a white Fiat driven by a male, later identified as Olando Thompson. Esposito was attempting to pick up the fraudulent purchase. Officer Keith swiftly arrived at the scene and detained both Esposito and Thompson without incident.

During the investigation, Esposito was found in possession of a fraudulent Pennsylvania identification card bearing the victim’s name, while Thompson was found with a handgun and a fraudulent U.S. Passport Card displaying a male’s name different from his own. Officer Keith promptly notified the male victim of Thompson’s possession of his personal identifying information.

Both suspects were taken into custody without further incident. The League City Police Department emphasizes the importance of citizens monitoring their bank accounts for any suspicious or unauthorized purchases. If any unauthorized transactions are observed, individuals are encouraged to contact their financial institution and the police department.
