By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY, KY - Three Graves County residents were arrested Wednesday on credit card fraud charges.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Office, Mary Walker told deputies that someone used her debit card information without her knowledge to obtain more than $2,800 of services and goods. Deputies learned that a room had been rented recently at the Super 8 Motel in Mayfield, using her debit card information.

According to police, the motel room had been rented to 42-year-old Brandy Arnett, of Mayfield, who was arrested earlier this week on drug charges. Arnett was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card device.

The investigation revealed that 25-year-old Nikki Blake of Dukedom had been using the card and had provided the information to Arnett to obtain the room. Blake also admitted that she had used the card to purchase items totaling over $1,000. Blake was arrested and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card device. She was already in the Graves County Jail on another charge.

According to deputies, Walker's grandson, 29-year-old Andrew Jones, of Mayfield, had obtained her debit card information and passed it on to others for them to use. He also reportedly used the information to obtain items for himself.

Jones was also arrested and taken to the Graves County Jail on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit card device.
