Norman woman arrested for unauthorized charges

One sure way to know that the bloom is off the rose in a relationship is when one party presses charges against the other. That's what happened to one Norman woman recently after a man she had allegedly dated accused her of using his credit cards to run up more than $20k in unauthorized charges on multiple accounts.

Oklahoma authorities began their investigation into the case after the victim reported back in May that his 38-year-old girlfriend had accessed his accounts without his permission. After reviewing his statements, the man found multiple unauthorized purchases.

According to the affidavit for her arrest, the woman used at least three credit cards and checks from two bank accounts to rent a cabin in Broken Bow, purchase items from Amazon and pay for motel rooms in and around Oklahoma City. She is also suspected of counterfeiting or forging checks on a business account that her ex-boyfriend had.

During the course of their investigation, the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) discovered no fewer than 14 aliases that the woman used in the past.

Because police could follow her movements based on her use of the purloined credit cards, the OCSO spokesman said they got the court to sign a warrant in September to pick her up on a charge of engaging in a pattern of criminal offenses.

After Hurricane Harvey struck Houston and the Gulf Coast region, the woman reached out to her victim, texting him photos of the storm damage and claiming to be working with relief efforts for the area.

Police located her in Ardmore in a hotel room with another man, allegedly her real boyfriend. In addition to charging her with conspiracy on a second warrant, the police busted this "boyfriend" for trafficking meth.

The woman served five years of a 7-year sentence imposed by an Oklahoma County judge back in 2007. She was convicted of uttering and released in 2012. At the time of her arrest and conviction, she was using the alias "Crystal Tims."

The OCSO spokesman said that police "believe there [are] more victims out there, there might even be more suspects." She remains in the Oklahoma County Jail.

While each case unfolds differently, anyone facing similar charges may wish to seek the guidance of an Oklahoma criminal defense attorney
