Revealed: The Woman at the ATM
You've probably seen the image all over the TV and on our blog. The woman with colorful sunglasses is shown on surveillance video using an ATM machine. Police say she was using someone else's ATM card at the SRP Credit Union on West Martintown Road in North Augusta.
Well, the woman was identified and arrested this week, according to Lt. Tim Pearson with North Augusta Public Safety. Her mugshot is pictured here along with the original surveillance image.
Vanessa M. Phillips, 25, of West Buena Vista Avenue, North Augusta, was located at her residence and placed under arrest on one count of credit card theft.
Based on her smile in the mugshot, Ms. Phillips apparently thought the whole thing was hilarious. Personally, we don't think stealing someone else's credit card and taking their money is funny at all. Can we get an 'Amen'?!
