They say the photo shows her using the card at Citi Trends as part of an illegal shopping spree around town.

Police say this all started at the Beauty Supply at 1611 Pulaski Pike on Aug. 14.

She got in her car and drove off when she realized she lost something.

When she returned to the store, the credit card was gone.
