Cash-only bond set for woman accused of using stolen card


A $10,000 cash-only bond was set Friday for a woman who allegedly used a credit card to take more than $13,000 from the account of the cardholder.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Courtney Clary, 23, with fraudulent use of a credit or debit card.

Clary surrendered to police Thursday after they sent out a press release including her picture and other information.

According to a police report, the owner of the card reported it missing April 20. The card owner said she had allowed a woman to live with her for about six months and on April 8 went to the store and found that her debit card was gone.

On May 4, police found the woman who had been staying with the alleged victim and they said she identified Clary as the person who used the card after looking at pictures taken at the Walmart Supercenter where the card was used. A second person, identified as Corey Williams, was arrested last week on the same charges. Police said store video showed Williams also using the card.

Clary is on probation on charges of breaking or entering, theft of property and criminal mischief.

She said she would hire her own attorney.
