Somerset County officials reported criminal charges for Ms. Lisa Pryor, 55, of Monroe with theft relating to an incident that was reported to the Branchburg Township Police Department.

Acting Prosecutor Chirichella stated that on September 7, a resident of Branchburg Township reported that someone had unlawfully used a credit card in the victim’s name, as well as personal identifying information, which resulted in a reported monetary loss of approximately $22,000.00.  

Officials said a follow-up investigation by Branchburg Township Police Detectives identified Lisa Pryor as the suspect in this matter.

The victim, who was homebound due to a medical condition, identified Pryor as an acquaintance to whom she gave her credit card so Pryor could grocery shop for the victim.  

Investigating detectives learned that over a period of time, Lisa Pryor used the credit card for her sole personal benefit without the victim’s permission or knowledge. 

On March 16, police said Pryor was formally charged with 3rd Degree Theft by Deception, 3rd Degree Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, 3rd Degree Identity Theft, and 4th Degree Credit Card Theft.

Investigating Detectives have been unsuccessful in locating Lisa Pryor. Anyone with information as to her whereabouts is asked to contact authorities.   

Acting Prosecutor Chirichella and Chief Fodor request anyone with information relating to this incident to contact the Branchburg Township Police Department at (908) 526-3830.
