Hernando woman victimized by daughter

Posted: Updated:
A Sumter County woman is facing a slew of charges after she allegedly stole her mother’s credit card and used it to make several dozen purchases.    

Kristie K. Sherron, 50, is being held without bond at the Hernando County Jail. The Lake Panasofkee resident is charged with a variety of crimes including organized fraud.

According to a Hernando County Sheriff’s Office report Mary Sherron, the suspect’s mom, contacted a representative of Capital One Bank after noticing several fraudulent transactions on her credit card bill.

Investigators say a total of 46 bogus charges beginning in May and ending in August were identified. Six of the transactions were declined; the total amount of approved purchases was $3,033.87.

The report states Mary Sherron’s credit card was stolen from her residence and used without her knowledge or permission. The victim identified her daughter, Kristie Sherron, as a possible suspect.

A subsequent investigation revealed that Kristie Sherron was arrested in September for her alleged involvement in a stolen property case. Several items in that case were taken from Mary Sherron’s home.

Officials with Capital One led detectives to Kristie due to the fact that she had called the company to inquire about her mother’s account. One of the fraudulent charges was made to the Hernando County Utilities Department to cover Kristie’s residential account.

Several other charges were made to Wal-Mart.com the report states. Investigators determined the suspect made the fraudulent payments and had items shipped to her home. Four other bogus payments were issued to the Dish Network for Kristie Sherron’s residential account.

On Thursday a HCSO detective contacted the suspect at the Hernando County Detention Center where he is being held on un-related charges. After being read her rights Kristie Sherron admitted to making all but one of the fraudulent charges.

The suspect stated that her mother gave her the card and was allowing her to use it. When questioned about inconsistencies in her statement Kristie Sherron refused to answer any more questions about the matter.

Additional charges may be filed as the investigation continues. Sherron’s bond on the fraud charges was set at $3,000. She was arrested by deputies in September on grand theft and providing false information charges; there is no bond for those charges.
