A White Hall woman reported that her credit card had been used to make several unauthorized transactions last Monday. The investigation lead to the arrest of a Dairy Queen cashier who was seen on video taking a picture of the card with her cell phone before returning it to the customer.
Ashlee Jones, 19, admitted to using the information on the card and making several online purchases using her cell phone. The purchases were denied before the merchandise could be shipped. Jones was arrested on Wednesday. The owner of the card told police that she had last used the card at the Dairy Queen in White Hall, and officers went to the business where the manager on duty pulled the security tape. The video showed Jones, who was working the drive-thru window, take the card and lay it on the counter. After taking the picture, she returned the card and receipt to the customer.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $2,500 bond for Jones on Thursday after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Jones with non-financial identity fraud.
