A woman previously arrested for identity theft was charged with forgery of a financial transaction card on Friday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.
Lakeisha Chevron Green, 36, was served with the new charge Friday afternoon, after police said they found additional evidence in a case that started in early December
Detectives with the financial crimes unit began their investigation after the victim reported two fraudulent charges to his credit card account. The card was still in his possession, police said, but charges were made Nov. 29 at the Rea Road Target, as well as a Shell gas station on East Boulevard.
Green was identified as a suspect and detectives said they arrested her at her residence on Dec. 13. She was charged with obtaining property by false pretense and identity theft.
At the time of Green’s arrest, detectives said they found additional evidence at her residence. They were able to obtain an additional warrant for forgery on Friday.
Anyone with information about this case or the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers: 704-334-1600, charlottecrimestoppers.com.
