Placeholder Image
A woman has been given three years in prison for running up a tab on her ex-father-in-law’s credit card without him knowing.The woman, Amy Nicole Tibbetts, 31, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley on charges of theft, fraudulent use of a credit card, identity theft, passing a forged instrument and attempt to commit theft.Tibbetts was charged last year after the victim discovered his Lowe’s credit card had been stolen. The discovery was made when he was called by Lowe’s and told he had reached his credit card limit of $1,500. The victim thought that was odd since he had not made any charges on that card.Sheriff’s investigator Travis Thaxton took the case and went to Lowe’s where he found there had been a purchase on the card for $310.
