Roberson stated that sometime between 5:00 p.m. on August 27th and 7:00 a.m. on August 28th, someone entered her unlocked vehicle and stole a credit card from her purse. After discovering the theft, Roberson contacted the credit card company and discovered someone had already used the credit card at the Southside Wal-Mart in Paducah.
