Man uses stolen credit card, was charged: ‘I knew it wasn’t legit’

Clarence Wigfall, 27, of St. Louis has been charged with theft after stealing a credit card and using it at Walmart.

According to court and police records, between December 18 and 19 at the Maplewood Walmart, a woman reported that her Mastercard had been lost or stolen, and it had been used to make $3,337 in unauthorized purchases at Walmart.

Surveillance video from the transactions showed a man and a woman using the card to make ATM withdrawals and making purchases using the card. Wigfall  was identified by the victim from the video. He was arrested several months later and admitted he had made the purchases and withdrawals, acting with the woman, who Wigfall said had told him he could use the card to buy anything in the store. He admitted to police, “I knew it wasn’t legit.” Wigfall said he had been allowed to keep $100 in cash and the woman kept the rest.
