Woburn Police summonsed two Gloucester men to court after they allegedly used a company credit card to buy more than $3,000 worth of power tools from a Woburn business and then sold them to a pawnshop. 

Police summonsed a 30-year-old Gloucester man and 27-year-old Gloucester man. The first man was charged with credit card fraud more than $250, conspiracy and larceny more than $250, and the other man was charged with two counts of credit card fraud more than $250, conspiracy and two counts of larceny more than $250.

In December, the men reportedly purchased $3,326.79 worth of power tools on a company credit card from Grainger in Woburn. 

One of the men is a former employee of a Gloucester company, but still had the credit card and made some of the purchases. The other man reportedly went back and bought more items with the credit card.

Police spoke to an employee at a Beverly pawnshop, which had records that showed the men sold the tools to the pawnshop.
