BELLMEAD, Texas- A woman was arrested for evading police and using a stolen credit card. She also attempted to use her daughter in her scheme. Mary Johnson, 33, was arrested and also charged for abandoning a child. Johnson sent her daughter into a Dollar General to buy $100 in gift cards with a stolen MasterCard.
An employee at the Dollar General stated that the card had a piece of sticky paper over the original card number and expiration date. When the police arrived, Johnson took off in a U-Haul truck and left the teenage girl behind. She led the officers on a chase along I-35 until she finally stopped at a church at 1900th block of Calumet and Hood Street.
Police discovered that the card belonged to a resident of Atlanta, Georgia, and had been used at Luby’s, Wal-Mart, and other Dollar General stores. The card was returned to its owner, and police are investigating how the card was stolen.
