FAIR LAWN -- A Teaneck woman was arrested and charged last week with attempting to use a Fair Lawn resident's stolen credit card, police said Friday.

Barbara Morrison, 42, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and criminal attempt after she tried to use a credit card stolen from a Sandford Road residence in late December, police said.

In the burglary, committed Dec. 23, 2012, a Sandford Road resident returned home from running errands to find his place ransacked, according to police reports. The resident's wallet, credit cards, cash and several pieces of jewelry were stolen, police said.
