The report of a stolen credit card used by a Florida escapee at Allsup’s in Henrietta has been deem a false alarm by the U.S. Marshal’s Service.

Update: Law enforcement shot and killed fugitive Albert Morales in the Grapevine area Saturday.

A report of a credit card suspected stolen by a Florida fugitive and used at the Allusp’s in Henrietta late Wednesday night has been deemed a false alarm by the U.S. Marshal’s service.



A resident of Grapevine was reported missing by her family on Wednesday, said Trent Touchstone, spokesperson for the U.S. Marshal’s Service Northern District of Texas. The woman, who had been traveling in the wrong direction, stopped at Allsup’s and made a purchase.

“It was an authorized use by the woman,” said Touchstone on Thursday afternoon. “It was unrelated.”

The credit card was believed possibly stolen by Albert Morales, a Florida fugitive considered by authorities to be armed and dangerous.

Morales escaped custody Monday in Grapevine while being transported from Florida to Nevada, where he was to serve 30 years for sexual assault with a deadly weapon. In Miami, Fla., Morales was serving 10 years after pleading guilty in December to sexual battery with a deadly weapon.

The U.S. Marshal’s Service notified the Clay County Sheriff’s office that the card had been used at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. The sheriff’s office was not able to obtain security footage from the Allsup’s head office in Santa Fe, N.M.

A Miami-Dade police detective suffered stab wounds during the escape, which occurred in a Walmart parking lot. Morales was shackled when he escaped.

Morales is described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 175 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was wearing dark shorts, a white hooded sweatshirt and one tennis shoe. On his left shoulder and upper arm, he has a tattoo of an America Indian on horseback and has scars on his left hand and arm, and on his nose. Morales has discolorations around his right eye and forehead.

The Texas DPS has issued a Blue Alert statewide, warning residents to keep a watch out for suspects who have killed or injured law enforcement officers.
