A Dothan woman was arrested Wednesday after police say she used a photocopy of a victim’s credit card to make online fraudulent purchases.
Mar’keschica Lashae Thornton, 21, of Headland, is charged with eight counts of fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.
“During the investigation it was determined Ms. Thornton allegedly used a photocopy of the victim’s credit card to attempt to purchase multiple items online by visiting a local business,” Dothan Police Lt.

She attempted to purchase roughly $1,000 worth of merchandise online.
The victim and Thornton are acquaintances.
