Woman charged with theft, fraudulent use of credit card

— An Athens woman was arrested Thursday after she allegedly used a stolen credit card at Walmart.

Athens Police said Misty Dawn Stults, 35, of 1500 U.S. 72, Athens, took the card from an acquaintance on Swan Drive, which she then reportedly used to purchase a laptop computer at Walmart.

After investigator Jonathan Caldwell obtained warrants for Stults, she was arrested on charges of second-degree theft of property and fraudulent use of a debit or credit card.

She was booked at the department where she was transferred to the Limestone County Jail. She was released Thursday on $5,000 bond.
