Adair woman arrested for stealing, using credit card

Police say an Adair County woman was arrested last week for the fraudulent use of a victim’s credit card, among other charges, after a multi-day investigation led police to neighboring Russell, Taylor, and Green counties along with Adair County.

Last week, the Adair County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into the theft of identity as the victim’s credit cards and checks were stolen and the stolen credit card was used in at least five locations with checks cashed at one bank and attempted at another.

Last Friday, Jacqueline Sandusky, age 34, of Columbia, was arrested and lodged in the Adair County Regional Jail on charges of felony possession of forged instrument 2nd degree, felony receipt of credit card, and misdemeanor theft by unlawful taking (auto).

Adair Deputy Jason Camfield was assisted in the investigation by K-9 Deputy Chandler Staten.
