ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A St. Louis woman accused of stealing credit cards from a Sullivan, Missouri optometrist's office was arrested Monday and now police suspect she is responsible for more thefts around the area.

Laymonda Fuller, 55, was arrested Monday and charged with stealing credit cards in Sullivan.  News 4 has since learned fuller has a criminal history that is more than 80 pages long, and that she is wanted in multiple states.

The doctors and staff at the Sullivan Eye Care were still talking about the bold thief who came to their office last Thursday. Brenda Cook was leaving for lunch as the woman was walking in an employee entrance.

"There was nothing suspicious about how she was acting, as a matter of fact she looked at me and greeted me and smiled with a very nice smile,” Cook said.

As the doctors and staff took care of patients, they say fuller went to a doctor's office.

"When I came out of the examination room to the office, she was stepping out of my personal office and she told me she was looking for one of the other doctors in the practice,” said Dr. David Prange.

The woman told them she was a prosperous attorney from St. Louis and left with a man in a minivan. The staff got suspicious and called Sullivan police who put out a description and within minutes a Franklin County deputy stopped the minivan on Interstate 44.

Authorities say the Fuller pulled off a wig to change her appearance, then faked a heart attack, before trying to hide stolen credit cards in her bra.

“She knew just what to take to not raise suspicion,” Dr. Prange said. Initially checking my wallet it seemed everything was fine, the cash was there and most of the credit cards, just the two were missing."

Pevely detectives are setting up an appointment to talk with her about their crime, in which a woman stole multiple credit cards from a hospital. Detectives in Festus, Rolla, Ste. Genevieve county and many other cities are lining up to file charges against this suspected career criminal that News 4 has learned had more than thirty aliases.
