Sheriff Arpaio Credit Card Info Stolen


By Paul Johnson

Phoenix, Arizona (CNN) - Here's proof anyone can become a victim.
Someone got a hold of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's credit card information.
They used it to make a nearly 300-dollar purchase at a store in Chicago last week.
The sheriff says he hasn't been to the Windy City in decades.
Last time I was in Chicago when I was a young federal agent and married my wife in 1957, I don't think they had credit cards way back.
Arpaio says the thief somehow got ahold of his card number, because he still has the Discover card used to make the fraudulent purchase.
