Clarksville clerk charged with using guests' info

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Clarksville say a motel clerk stole guests' credit card numbers and gambled online.

The department said an investigation began when an Illinois woman found more than $4,000 in online gambling fees had been charged to her credit card, which was still in her possession.

The probe led to a Super 8 motel in Clarksville, where the victim had stayed during a trip to Florida in November. Police discovered her credit card information had been stolen and used online.

Authorities arrested 52-year-old Belinda Fay Blake of Clarksville, charging her with illegal use of a credit card.

The investigator said Blake admitted she had also used several other people's credit card information to make purchases.

Blake had been released from the Montgomery County Jail by Friday.
