Woman uses debit card 29 times ‘by mistake’ 

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Webster Parish Sheriff’s investigators have arrested a local woman for taking advantage of an elderly person.

Sharon Mosely, 49, of the 800 block of Methodist Camp Road, Minden, is charged with felony theft.

Sheriff Jason Parker said T.D. Kemp Jr. arrested Mosely after investigating the woman who was employed as a sitter with the elderly and infirmed through a Homer-based, business.

“During the timeframe of November 2021 to current, Mosely used the complainant’s bank debit card to purchase goods and services for her own personal use without authorization from the account holder, who was her client,” Parker said. “Mosely was granted use of the debit card in the scope of her assigned duties for purchasing groceries for the client, but it was revealed that Mosely also paid her own cell phone bill, paid for appliance rental and Door Dash for large quantities of food on numerous occasions.”

Mosley was reportedly taken into custody at her residence and transported to the sheriff’s office where she allegedly admitted she conducted the unauthorized transactions “by mistake all 29 times,” the sheriff said.

She was booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
