Cindy Lopez, 21, of Corona, and Andres Alvarez, 20, of Fresh Meadows, allegedly used a credit card an Applebee’s customer had left inside a bill folder to make purchases that totaled several hundred dollars at Mrs. Field’s Cookies, Aldo, Armani Exchange and Fossil, the DA said.

The two were arraigned Feb. 4 on charges of grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, identity theft, petit larceny and unlawful possession of personal identification, according to the DA.

They will return to court March 9.
