A Union man has been arrested in connection to the theft of a debit card. The incident occurred on July 23rd. Deputy Tim Taylor responded to Dollar General on Lockhart Highway and spoke with an employee, who stated that two subjects had tried to use a debit card to purchase cigarettes, but the card was flagged as stolen. The employee identified the two men, one of which was 42-year-old Clay Morris. The employee stated that Morris and the person with him tried to use the card multiple times, but the transaction would not go through. The employee stated she took the card from the men.

Six days later, Captain Scott Coffer contacted Morris and had him come to the sheriff’s office. Coffer read Morris his rights, and he agreed to speak. Morris gave a statement of what happened that day. Coffer then contacted the victim, who stated he wished to prosecute. A warrant was issued for Clay Morris for financial transaction card theft.
