CLINTON — A 19-year-old woman received a deferred judgment for two counts of credit card fraud.

Tityana Woodland appeared for sentencing Thursday before District Court Judge Nancy Tabor.

Woodland received a suspended $750 civil penalty on each charge, and was placed on two years probation. Two charges of identity theft of more than $1,000 were dismissed pursuant to a motion by the state, represented in this case by Assistant County Attorney Amanda Myers.

Woodland was ordered to pay restitution to 1st Gateway Credit Union in the amount of $315.78 and $100 to Jolene Burnett, of Clinton.

According to the affidavit, on June 7 Clinton police responded to several reports of stolen credit cards. Karla Trude reported that her vehicle was entered and her 1st Gateway debit card and Capitol One card were stolen from 1310 Pershing Blvd.

Jolene Burnett reported that someone entered her residence at 1813 N. Third St. while she was sleeping and stole several items, including her debit card and Chase Visa.

That same day, a loss prevention employee at Wal-Mart reviewed video of a group of people in the store during the early morning hours, according to the affidavit. The group included six people, one of whom was Woodland.

On surveillance video, one the individuals attempted to use one of the stolen cards but the card was denied. Woodland then attempted to use the card, but it was again denied.

The two individuals used a different stolen card and were approved for a transaction of $315.78, according to the affidavit.

The suspects returned a few hours later and purchased an Xbox with another stolen card and were approved for a $533.93 transaction. An attempt to purchase another Xbox with the same card was denied.

The total charges to Trude’s stolen cards were: $295.12 (denied), $295.12 (denied), $315.78 (approved), $1009.66 (denied), $450.70 (denied), $360.82 (denied) and $380.78 (denied).

All of the transactions were made at Wal-Mart, the affidavit states, adding that all suspects were identified using surveillance video from Wal-Mart, Kwik Star and Lyons Filling Station.
