An Florida woman is now facing felony charges after she had the bright idea of using a stolen credit card to bail her friend out of jail..
46-year-old Lakeisha Brisbane (above) used the stolen card for three separate transactions, for a total of $850, with a bail bonds company.
She was using the card to bail out 21-year-old Shermaine Arnold. (below)
Ms. Arnold had been arrested in November skipping out on cab fare of $62.21. She’d also had an outstanding warrant in connection with a felony battery case in Miami-Dade county, so her bond was set at $7500.
She spent a week behind bars before her genius friend went into 49th Street Bail Bonds to bail her out using the card â€œissued in the name of elderly male victim,â€ according to the criminal complaint charges.
Ms. Brisbane was arrested Thursday on grand theft and credit card fraud charges; felonies. She was then released on $10,000 bond…by a different bail bonds company.
