ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

Athens Police arrested a woman who they say used a credit card that had been lost at her place of work.

A woman told officers her card had been used without her knowledge at the K&J Quick Stop on Elm Street. The victim said she had accidentally left her card there in December. Five days later the card company notified her it had been used at that location again.

The victim spoke with the store manager who said she had stored the card for its rightful owner, but then discovered an employee had used the card.
