A 30 year old Dowelltown woman, charged earlier this month with fraudulent use of a credit card, is in even more trouble with the law.
Carla Denise Chapman of Snow Hill Road , who was free on bond from the earlier charges, has been arrested again, this time for theft of property over $1,000.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says Chapman went to a relative's house on Snow Hill Road Friday and took several pieces of jewelry, valued at over $1,000. She then took the stolen jewelry to a local pawn shop where she disposed of it.
Chapman's bond on this charge is $25,000 and she will be in General Sessions Court February 1st.
Chapman was first arrested on January 18th charged with four counts of fraudulent use of a credit card. She is under a $4,000 bond on those offenses.
Sheriff Ray says in that case, Chapman stole a credit card from a family member and went to the Region's Bank location on the public square downtown Smithville on January 11th and 12th where she used the card to make withdrawals from an ATM machine in the amount of $1,710.
Sheriff Ray says Chapman also used the credit card to purchase gasoline from DeKalb Market on January 15th, $826.00 worth of jewelry from Houston's Jewelry on January 15th, and $383 worth of merchandise from Pamida on January 16th.
