  • Clayton Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying a woman wanted for questions in reference to the unauthorized use of a credit card.
    Police said on Dec. 13 at about 2:40 p.m., a woman used a credit three times at the Wawa on Jimmy Drive in Smyrna. The suspect then used the card one more time to buy Jewelry at Walmart.
    The card was stolen from a teacher at Clayton Elementary, when it was taken out of a wristlet purse during the school day, police said. The teacher realized the card was gone at the end of the day, and called the bank to report the card missing. The bank advised the woman four charges were made on the credit card that afternoon.
    A total of roughly $700 charges were put on the card during the four incidents.
    The suspect is described as being a black female, 25 to 35 years old, 5' to 5'8" tall, and 180 to 250 lbs. A security camera at the Wawa shows the suspect wearing hot pink sweatpants, pink shoes, a denim and leather jacket with a striped black and white hood, and was carrying a silver purse. Police said the suspect was seen possibly leaving in an older Mercury Sable or Ford Taurus.
    Anyone with information can contact PFC Philip Bishop at 653-8186 ext. 17 or the Clayton Fire Department duty phone at (302) 270-5123. Tips may be left anonymously.
