THE BRONX - A Bronx Staples cashier has been arrested for her role in allegedly stealing $180,000 using customer credit cards.

Investigators in Westchester County say Valerie Fajard used a skimming device over seven months to steal data from at least 50 people. She's accused of selling the information to a Bronx man for $6,000, who then made purchases.

Authorities are still looking for the person who gave her the skimmer, as well as the man who bought the card data.
