BELLEVUE, Ky. -- A Cynthiana, Ky., woman was arrested Friday morning following scams and robberies at businesses in Bellevue and Newport.
Newport police officers arrested 28-year-old Tara Harmon in Newport after Det. Jon McClain received a call from police in Newport that they found Harmon's vehicle.
A business owner in Newport called police and said the same scam happened at her store about a month ago.
Police were able to use that information, along with calls from Campbell County dispatch, to gather a vehicle description and find a relative of the vehicle's owner. The relative identified Harmon and told police where they could find her.
When Newport police took Harmon into custody, they said she confessed to making up a story that she needed money to pay for a funeral. Officers said she also confessed to stealing credit cards and a cellphone from an employee at Virgil's Restaurant Wednesday, Nov. 20.
She told police she was addicted to heroin, and the thefts were a means to get money for the drug, officers said.
Harmon was charged with two counts of unauthorized credit card use and theft.
