$150 pizza charge leads to arrests

OBERLIN — Two women were arrested after police determined that they used a stolen credit card to purchase food from Domino’s Pizza using a cell phone.

Police charged Angeline Payne, 18, and Tamicka Fisher, 36, with misuse of credit cards Saturday. Payne was also charged with obstructing official business and Fisher with forgery.

An investigation led to Payne and Fisher after an Oberlin woman reported losing her wallet while bicycling to Eastwood School, according to a police report. The woman told police she retraced her steps and did not find the wallet. When she called to cancel her credit cards, the bank reported that one of her cards was used at Domino’s Pizza in Oberlin to place a $150 order.

At 6:32 p.m. Saturday, an officer spoke to the manager of Domino’s who told police that the order was placed about 2 p.m. via the Internet using a cell phone. Police obtained the address and phone number used to place the order.

Police visited the home and Payne answered the door but denied ordering food from Domino’s. Police said a plate on the table had sausage and dipping cups typically sold at pizza restaurants.

The credit card was found in the robe Fisher was wearing, police said.

Both women were arrested and later released.
