HUDSON — The last place the man remembered seeing his credit card was at Publix. He checked his account and saw $ 411.90 in unexplained charges.

Deputies said a cashier at the Publix at 14851 State Road 52 saw that the card had been left behind April 14 — so she decided to use it.

Deputies say she later told them she was using the card for gas and car insurance.

She was arrested on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit card. She was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center in Land O’Lakes.

Representatives from Publix did not immediately return a call to confirm her employment status.
