Fresno County Sheriff's Office released this video Wednesday, April 2, 2014, of a woman sought in connection with a theft of a wallet from a county employee. The wallet contained a credit card that was later used at two Fresno stores. The woman was later found, arrested and jailed -- but was released last week after serving six days at the Fresno County Jail. A citizen tip made through Crime Stoppers led to the arrest of Crystal Sharee Blyman, 31, of Fresno on April 3, said detective Adam Esmay with the Fresno County Sheriff's Office. After pleading guilty, Blyman was released from jail on April 9, he said.
