LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette woman is sentenced to three years for spending more than $2,100 on a stolen credit card in less than six hours.

In May, Kelli Cooksey, 40, pleaded guilty to fraud and theft.

According to court documents, Cooksey was working at Inside Scoop at Tippecanoe Mall in December. A credit card was used by a customer and the customer didn’t realize she never got her card back until the fraud department with her bank called.

After investigating, Lafayette police linked Cooksey to eight transactions at stores including Express, Best Buy and Walmart.

She was sentenced to one year in Community Corrections and two years supervised probation.
