Great Moments In Crime

Don't you know it's bad luck to use a stolen credit card at the same place you stole it?

BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- A Wal-Mart clerk noticed something familiar when a customer went through the checkout line -- a credit card from her own wallet, which had been stolen two days earlier, police said.

Ashley Dawn Dover repeatedly tried to pass a credit card through an electronic scanner at the store Tuesday to pay for $120 worth of merchandise, Police Chief James Allen said Wednesday.

Allen said the clerk then offered to try the card and noticed it was her own.

The credit card was stolen from the cashier's car, one of two vehicles broken into at Wal-Mart on Sunday. A camera, CDs and a purse were taken from the cashier's vehicle.

Of course, if you've ever been to Bentonville, there's no place else to shop. I think you even have to be buried in Walmart's cemetary when you die.
