A Tuscumbia, Ala. man was arrested this week by Corinth Police and charged with credit card fraud, said Corinth Police Detective Capt. Dell Green.
A Corinth hotel contacted police saying that a person had rented a room with a stolen credit card, Green said.
Police responded to the hotel and made contact with the suspect, Jessie Clinton Ford. Police noticed that Ford’s vehicle had a broken window on the driver’s side. A records check revealed that the truck had been reported stolen out of Alabama, Green said.
The credit card and the vehicle were allegedly stolen from the same person in Alabama, Green noted.
Corinth Police Detective Michael Suitor worked the case.
In a separate case, a Corinth woman will be charged with possession of stolen property after an incident on Tuesday morning, Green said.
Corinth Police received a report at about 9 a.m. Tuesday that two people were passed out in a vehicle on Rose Street, Green said.
Police determined that the vehicle, a 2004 pickup truck, was reported stolen out of Winfield, Ala., Green added.
Jessica Rice-Fields, 38, of County Road 226, will be charged with felony possession of stolen property, police said
