IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. -- A year after an Iredell County couple noticed fraudulent charges made to their account, authorities arrested the woman accused of the crime in Virginia.
The victims reported the incident to police in November 2012.
They say a longtime friend stopped by their home along with three people they did not know. Soon after, the woman noticed the two fraudulent charges and her husband noticed his wallet was taken from their house.
One of the victims’ two checks was cashed at a local bank. The suspects cashed the second at a Virginia bank.
Virginia authorities assisted with the investigation. They arrested 25-year-old Angela Perkins of West Virginia on Friday. She’s charged with larceny, uttering a forged statement and obtaining property by false pretense.
Detectives arrested on four outstanding warrants. Police have not released that person’s name.
Perkins will be extradited back to Iredell County.
