A much-arrested 59-year-old Buffalo woman who has served time in state prison for credit card forgery was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly stealing a Hertel Avenue woman’s credit card and using it to run up $302.29 in purchases at a Buffalo restaurant and four stores since May 5.

Louise K. Nolley was taken into custody during questioning by Police Officers Jimmie Larke III and Dustin Johnson at the Hertel Police Station.

Accused of stealing the credit card off a coffee table in its owner’s apartment at about 9:30 p.m. May 4, Nolley was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, stolen property and petit larceny.

A former addict, Nolley won a Federal Court judgment against the Erie County government for being placed in isolation at the Erie County Holding Center following a 1988 arrest because of her allegedly being infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Court officials several years ago confirmed that most of that Federal Court judgment went to Nolley’s lawyers for court-related expenses.

In July 1995, she was sentenced in State Supreme Court to two to four years in prison for using a forged credit card.
