MIDVALE, Utah, Oct. 18, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A woman has turned herself in to authorities after the Unified Police Department released a video of a suspect stealing the credit card of a man who was suffering a seizure in a Midvale convenience store.

Alexandra Justine Dewsnup, 28, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on investigation of theft, a second-degree felony, and unlawful possession of a credit card, a third-degree felony, according to a probable cause statement.

Video of the incident, which occurred on Oct. 4 at the 7-Eleven at 6852 S. State St., was released Friday.

“The A/P was identified by numerous people, including her parents,” the probable cause statement says. “The A/P, Alexandra Dewsnup, contacted me and stated she wanted to turn herself in.”

Dewsnup told officers she did not recall what happened at the 7-Eleven because “she was under the influence of Xanax, but takes full responsibility.”

Dewsnup also admitted receiving a confirmation that she had used the victim’s credit card to make an online purchase.

Dewsnup has at least three prior convictions on theft charges, two in Utah and one in Alaska, according to court records.
