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 “issued in the name of elderly male victim,” 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.
