BROOKSVILLE - A Lake Panasofkee woman was arrested on charges of organized fraud after investigators found she had made or attempted to make 46 fraudulent purchases with her mother's credit card.
Kristie Sherron, 50, successfully spent $3,033.87 on her mother's Capital One credit card. Had all of the transactions been approved, Sherron would have spent $5,319.45 of the Hernando County woman's money.
An investigation found Sherron had previously been accused of stealing items from her mother's home.
Some of the fraudulent transactions were made with the Hernando County Utilities Department, Dish Network and Walmart.
On Thursday, Sherron was at the Hernando County Jail on unrelated charges of larceny and fraud, and admitted to detectives she made all but one of the purchases, and had her mother's permission to do so.
She is being held on no bond.
