A Greensburg woman used her imprisoned roommate's debit card to obtain goods and steal money totaling $7,117, city police said.

Danyal Kuhn, 31, faces a preliminary hearing Thursday before Greensburg District Judge James Albert on charges of access device fraud, theft and receiving stolen property.

Between July 10 and Oct. 3, Kuhn used her roommate's PIN number to access the bank account via the debit card, police said. At the time, the roommate was in Westmoreland County Prison for a reason not explained in court papers.

The roommate discovered the missing money when she was released from prison, Detective Sgt. Henry Fontana said.

Kuhn told police her roommate told her to use the card to put money in the roommate's prison bank account and to get a lawyer, according to court papers.

However, the roommate said she was represented by a public defender, police said.

Kuhn admitted she used $1,500 of her roommate's money to buy a car, police said. She said the roommate knew about it and called it a loan, authorities said.

Kuhn is free on $10,000 unsecured bond.
