Felony charges have been filed against a Gurdon woman in connection with the unauthorized use of a man’s debit card.
Jana Dawn Hilton, 50, of 3614 Central Road, Gurdon, faces charges of theft of property in the form of a credit, debit card or account number, according to an affidavit filed Tuesday in the Clark County Circuit Clerk’s office.
According to the affidavit, filed by Sgt. Blake Forga, criminal investigator for the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, authorities received information on Nov. 10 from a Summit Bank employee regarding the possible fraudulent use of a customer’s bank account number. The bank employee said she notified the victim, who said he hadn’t given anyone permission to use the account, according to the affidavit, which does not disclose how much money was taken from the account.
The bank then provided authorities with documents that revealed the questionable transactions showed Hilton as the purchaser, according to the report. The items that were purchased were also delivered to her residence, the affidavit says.
On Wednesday, Nov. 16, Gurdon deputy marshal Toby Garner made contact with Hilton and confiscated a package that she had allegedly purchased without the account holder’s consent. The item, as well as the investigation, was then turned over to the Clark County’s Criminal Investigation Division.
If convicted, Hilton could face a prison sentence of up to six years and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Her arraignment is slated for Jan. 10.
