MERRIMACK - A Massachusetts woman arrested last month for allegedly purchasing alcohol and other goods with stolen credit card information is facing new charges related to the Sept. 2 incident, according to police.

Shamia C. Jordan, 22, of Sudbury, Mass., is facing two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card as a result of an ongoing investigation following a traffic stop on Concord Street in Nashua for a defective taillight. Police say they observed many unopened bottles of liquor and three credit cards during the stop that officers say "were stuffed into the seat where Jordan had been sitting."

Police later determined she allegedly used the cards to purchase roughly $1,200 worth of liquor at the New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlet in Merrimack, as well as about $500 in clothing at the Nike store at Merrimack Premium Outlets, according to court documents.

Bail was set at $5,000 personal recognizance, and Jordan is scheduled to appear in a Merrimack courtroom on Nov. 17 to answer the charges.

A subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a number of cloned credit cards, which Jordan admitted to having fraudulently recently used, officers said.

As police spoke with the occupants, who include the driver, 28-year-old Jamal Smith, and the front-seat passenger, 31-year-old Anthony Young, in addition to Jordan, they noticed the three acting "odd" and "appeared nervous."

Smith was charged with one count of criminal liability for the conduct of another to receiving stolen property during the incident. Police accuse him of helping Jordan by allegedly agreeing to drive her to New Hampshire then back to Dorchester, Mass., for a fee.

Jordan is facing additional charges in Nashua for forgery and receiving stolen property.
