Woman who worked in Paris residence is accused with two roommates of credit card abuse

An investigation into several fraudulent charges on a Paris woman’s credit card has resulted in additional charges and the re-arrest of Zina Danielle Brewer, 23; Sara Gean Wadkins, 48; and Dino Marlo Crispieri, 48, all of Paris, Police Chief Bob Hundley said today.

According to Lamar County Jail records, all three were shown to be living in the same apartment in the 3200 block of Clarksville Street, and Brewer had been working inside the victim’s residence.

Paris Police Department spokesman Curtis Garrett said an investigation revealed that Brewer, Wadkins and Crispieri had used the card numerous times, and they were arrested in mid-December.

Additional credit card charges have since been found, resulting in additional charges, Hundley said.

Crispieri, Wadkins and Brewer were taken on Dec. 11 to the Lamar County Jail, where bond was set at $4,000 for each on charges of credit card or debit card abuse.
