“The price she was asking was very reasonable, enough that it should’ve drawn a red flag but didn’t. I wrote the check and on the way home is when I felt I made a bad move," Jeremy Fairgrieve, the owner of the store, said.

After getting away with it once, Yohe allegedly contacted Fairgrieve to sell a second card, this one for $2,500. When that happened, police set up a sting and arrested her.

“As soon as she showed up and we tried to do the transaction that’s when they came in and arrested her on site," Fairgrieve said.
