Police Information Officer Rodney Brown said the 17-year-old male victim later learned that his debit card from the stolen wallet had been charged four separate times for fuel and phone calls.

Clark, 26, was suspected and he was charged Thursday with unauthorized use of a financial transaction device (debit card).

Clark is already in jail on several charges related to drugs and thefts. In one burglary, his girlfriend is thought to have helped him.

Laura K. McKain, 32, was in Lincoln County Court Thursday on charges of burglary and aiding and abetting Clark.

McKain allegedly was driving the car when Clark stole metals in October from the Regional Recycling Center.

Clark pled guilty to that burglary on Tuesday.

A few days after the burlgary, McKain was filmed as she tried to sell some of the goods to the North Platte Metals salvage yard.

Defense attorney Pat Hays cast doubt on evidence against McKain. Hays said Clark had an above-board agreement to pick up some tires at the recycling center, and there is reasonable doubt that McKain knew that Clark was stealing anything.

Likewise, McKain might not have known she was trying to sell stolen goods at the metal yard.

Prosecutors pointed out that the tires were in one part of the center and the metals that Clark took came from a building in another part, and that Clark took both after the center was closed for the day.

Keith County Judge Edward D. Steenburg, who was sitting in for Judge Michael Piccolo, said he would review the evidence.
