Authorities Nab Suspect in Case of Elderly Woman's Stolen Wallet
Nancy C. Crawford, 61, of Athens, has been charged with four felonies. The search continues for a male suspect.
An Athens woman was booked into the Oconee County Jail Thursday on charges stemming from an investigation into the theft of an 87-year-old woman's wallet and fraudulent use of the victim's credit cards.
Nancy C. Crawford, 61, of Billups Street in Athens, is charged with three counts of financial transaction card fraud and one count of identity fraud, according to a news release. An arrest does not mean a conviction.
The Sheriff's Office Wednesday released to the public and surrounding law enforcement agencies images of two suspects and a vehicle captured on surveillance tapes.
An Athens-Clarke County Police detective recognized Crawford from a previous contact, and warrants were obtained for her arrest, the news release stated.
Authorities continue to search for the male suspect, who has yet to be identified.
