A former state worker is in jail on credit card theft charges.

Joy Lynn Aikens faces 9 felony counts. She was arrested yesterday.

State police began investigating when two taxpayers claimed that a revenue department worker asked for the credit information when they called to make payments.

That is a violation of department policy.

Authorities said Aikens answered both calls, and then used the card numbers on four purchases.
