— Clayton police are searching for a woman who allegedly used stolen credit cards to make purchases at two Garner stores one week before Christmas.

Police said that the woman stole a wallet from a nurse at Johnston Health’s Hospital on Dec. 18 and proceeded to make several purchases at a Walmart and Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Garner. The charges were for about $2,400.

The woman is described as black, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weighing about 200 to 225 pounds. Authorities said she was wearing eyeglasses and medical scrubs.

Police are also searching for a second woman, who they believe served as a getaway driver. She was driving a white passenger car and also appeared to be wearing scrubs, authorities said.

Anybody with information is asked to call Clayton police at 919-550-5341 or Crime Stoppers at 919-359-8479.

    Justin Case, you are the most predictable, biased person to comment. Where was your comment on the WHITE WOMAN that robbed and has been robbing jewelry stores throughout the Southeast. Do you think the WHITE WOMAN will be dropping those stolen jewels off to needy families and brides? You are either commenting on what you think is about blacks or Durham. Please comment on the constant pictures of white men and women that comment crimes against children in Cary and throughout this country.

    This is such an awful story. I have had things stolen from me and my family while in the hospital. It's beyond sad when a person takes advantage of patients or staff in a hospital. Nurses work too hard to be victimized like this. When she is caught (and I believe that she will), she should receive the maximum sentence. Really?? $2400. at Walmart and a home improvement store? Let me guess what was under the Christmas tree at her house. ....
