The reporting party had the individual on the phone with them the entire time and gave the gift card numbers as soon as they bought them. As soon as the last card was bought the individual hung up. Deputy Nicolas Berumen handled the call which he took at about 5:30 p.m. on September 25. Deputy Berumen advised the individual tried to go back to the stores and stop some of the gift cards.
