Fraudulent Schemes 

Feb. 25, a male connected online with a female, and he claimed she needed money and promised she would return it when she was able. After multiple times of trying to convince the victim to help her, he eventually agreed. She then told him to go purchase $2,000.00 worth of gift cards and send her pictures of the back of the cards, which he then did. Later on, he noticed there was an additional $2,000.00 missing from his bank accounts, being deducted in increments of $500.00. This case is now closed, because there is no further action that can be taken.

They were then arrested for DUI, speeding and possession of marijuana and taken to the Western Regional Jail.
