An investigation into alleged unauthorized withdrawals from a Pine Bluff manís bank account resulted in the arrest of a woman who allegedly admitted making the withdrawals.
Alisha Smith, 24, reportedly waived her right to an attorney when she was questioned by police Wednesday. Smith allegedly said she and another person had made with withdrawals, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Thursday for Smith.
Detective Steven Rucker reported that the victim contacted police on Dec. 23 and the investigation indicated that multiple merchants, including Cricket, Entergy, Geico and others, were paid from the account. Kizer said a total of $2,600 was taken from the account.
Kizer said Smith had no prior convictions or pending charges.
Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $2,500 bond for Smith after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with forgery and theft of property.
Smith said she would hire her own attorney and was told to come back to court March 15 at 9 a.m.
