— A Springdale man is facing computer fraud charges after being accused of stealing over $350 dollars from Sam's Club, according to Fayetteville police.

Police were dispatched to the Sam's Club on Highway 112 Thursday in reference to fraud.

A Sam's Club spokeswoman said no customers or store associates were affected by the incident.

Edwards was placed under arrest and taken to the Washington County Detention Center.
