Fugitive Arrested on Local Charges

arrest mckinnisPADUCAH, Ky. (5/8/13) – On May 6, 2013, Austin McKinnis, 31, a Nixa, Mo. resident, was charged with Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card by the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department. McKinnis was arrested in January by the Benton, Arkansas Police Department on local charges, and transferred to McCracken County Jail on May 6th. McKinnis was wanted on an arrest warrant regarding the above charge.
 
On November 14, 2012, Gary Midyett, Atlanta Street, Paducah, Ky., reported his credit card had been stolen and used at local retail stores. Midyett stated he discovered several unauthorized charges on his credit card and reported it to the credit card company. Midyett believed his credit card had been stolen from his wallet at a local fitness club.
 
Midyett discovered the credit card charges were for gift cards from Wal-Mart and K-Mart, which totaled $1000. Four $200 gift cards were purchased from Wal-Mart, and one $200 gift card was purchased from K-Mart.
 
The investigation determined, the suspect, McKinnis, used the gift cards at Wal-Mart, in Marion, Illinois, to purchase tires and service for his vehicle. McKinnis’ identity was discovered through his vehicle registration, video surveillance, and information obtained from other law enforcement agencies who were investigating McKinnis on similar crimes.
 
The Chesterfield, Mo. Police Department sent out a bulletin to area law enforcement agencies, which showed a photo of McKinnis and his vehicle. McCracken County Sheriff’s Department detectives recognized McKinnis and his vehicle, and contacted Chesterfield, Mo. P.D. The photos from video surveillance in Chesterfield and McCracken County were a match for the McKinnis. It was learned that McKinnis had been taking credit cards and money from unlocked lockers in a fitness club in Chesterfield. Chesterfield P.D. is continuing their investigation and additional charges may result.
