Stolen credit card info gets a Camp Verde inmate out of jail

January 9, 2020 GMT

CAMP VERDE, Ariz. (AP) — Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say a woman has been arrested for allegedly using stolen credit card information to bail her boyfriend out of jail in Camp Verde.

They say 30-year-old Jasmine Sizelove is being held on suspicion of fraud and fraud by impersonation.

She remains in custody on a cash-only $50,000 bond.

The sheriff’s office began investigating the case last month after the victim reported that someone had fraudulently used his credit card to post bond for an inmate at the Camp Verde Detention Center.

The victim told deputies he had previously used his credit card to book a room at a Sedona-area resort on Nov. 28.

But when he received his credit statement a couple of weeks later, he noticed his card information had also been used to post a nearly $14,000 bond for 40-year-old inmate Michael Ellison.

Sheriff’s officials say the victim doesn’t know Ellison.

Deputies contacted the resort where the victim used his credit card and learned that Sizelove was an employee there.

Ellison was re-arrested Tuesday and is being held on a cash-only bond of $25,000.
