Suspended sentence for Mason City woman accused of stealing credit card and rolling up $1000 in charges
MASON CITY — It’s a suspended prison sentence and probation for a Mason City woman who was accused of stealing a credit card and charging over $1000 at numerous stores.
46-year-old Angela Shave was originally charged with ongoing criminal conduct and unauthorized use of a credit card. A criminal complaint says Shave allegedly stole the credit card and made over 30 transactions at multiple convenience stores, grocery stores and online stores between October 24th and November 1st of last year totaling $1164. Shave was allegedly seen on closed circuit television security cameras at multiple stores making those transactions and forging signatures.
As part of a plea agreement, Shave agreed to plead guilty to the unauthorized use of a credit card charge with the ongoing criminal conduct charge being dropped.
District Judge Colleen Weiland this week sentenced Shave to a suspended five year prison sentence and placed her on three to five years probation.
