LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A married couple is charged with theft after stealing a credit card from an elderly woman, police say.

According to an arrest report for Arlington Yates, he and his wife, Sherrie Yates, worked together to distract the woman while they stole her wallet from her purse.

The thieves then used the card to make purchases of more than $1000. They were captured on surveillance footage at two stores, and Mr. Yates admitted to the offense. He also admitted to throwing away the stolen wallet and credit card.

Mr. Yates had already been arrested earlier in the day for fourth-degree assault when police added new charges of fraudulent use of a credit card, tampering with physical evidence and theft by unlawful taking.
