A woman was arrested on seven counts of fraudulent use of a credit card on Dec. 21. The Selma Police Department believe she took a credit card from someone’s clothes at the dry cleaners.

“The victim reported that she had left her credit card inside her uniform that she dropped off at a local dry cleaners on Dec. 7,” Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said. “She noticed that since the card was gone, several unauthorized purchases showed up on her credit card.”

Police said there were a total of seven unauthorized purchases were made between Dec. 7 and Dec. 9. The suspect, Carol Ladsen Manzie, tried to use the card as a debit card at a local bank, but they refused to help her after Manzie did not have the proper pin number.

“During the investigation, the investigators were able to recover video and photographic evidence of the suspect at several businesses,” Riley said. “Through continued investigation, Carol Ladsen Manzie was identified as the suspect.”

Manzie, 48, was arrested Dec 21 by investigators and taken to the Dallas County Jail. She was charged with seven counts of fraudulent use of a credit/debit card. Her bond was set at $105,000. Each of the seven charges are the equivalent of a $15,000 bond.
