Trying for a bogus refund at Wal-Mart

COTTONWOOD - A Clarkdale woman was arrested at Wal-Mart, allegedly attempting to get a bogus refund from the store.

The security agent told police she watched 31-year-old Jessie Kay Russell enter the store and go to the automotive section. She and a man had selected a box of bike tube and ratchet tie downs, comparing the items to a receipt in her hand. Russell then took the items to the Customer Service desk and asked for a refund. She was given $30.83.

When confronted by the cop, the woman said she and her boyfriend came to Wal-Mart to buy groceries, but, since she was low on money, she brought a receipt from a prior purchase on Feb. 13. She selected the items in the store and got a refund for them from Customer Service.

She was charged with fraudulent schemes, offering a forged instrument, possessing a forged instrument and violation of a promise to appear.

Russell was wanted on a valid warrant for failing to appear in court on a prior offense.

The boyfriend was gone when the officer went to check.
