On August 31st, Angela Wilson, who resides on Brentwood Drive in Reidland, reported that she believed her credit card was stolen from her vehicle. Wilson stated sometime between August 30th and 31st, her credit card came up missing from her vehicle. After discovering the credit card missing, Wilson contacted her credit card company and discovered it had been used at Southside Wal-Mart in Paducah.
