From Local Sources
JASPER — Police took a woman into custody Tuesday after investigating a report of theft and fraud.
The Jasper Police Department investigated after learning a woman was reporting that her debit card was lost and then used without authorization July 16 at the Walmart Supercenter, 4040 N. Newton St. The police investigation found there had been three unauthorized purchases between the hours of 3:55 a.m. and 4:10 a.m. on July 16 totaling $318.37.
The individual developed as a suspect was Melissa T. Headings, 30, 121 E. 36th St., Jasper.
When interviewed, according to police, Headings allegedly admitted to using the card to make the purchases but said a friend had given it to her. That friend was contacted, denied Headings’ accusation and provided an alibi that checked out, according to police.
Authorities booked Headings into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:27 p.m. Tuesday on preliminary charges that included a Level 5 felony count of fraud on a financial institution, a Level 6 felony count of fraud and a misdemeanor count of theft.
