Fayetteville woman charged with ID theft against 82-year-old

Posted January 9, 2012

— A Fayetteville woman faces several charges in connection with a case of identity theft in which she allegedly stole hundreds of dollars from an 82-year-old man.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said Monday that Jasmine Pauly Bullock, of 517 Mayview St., was arrested Thursday on one count of identity theft and two counts of obtaining property by false pretense.

Investigators said Bullock used banking information belonging to the man to pay more than $700 in electric bills over a 30-day period.

The man contacted authorities after he noticed money missing from his bank account.

Sheriff's investigators are also looking for Bullock's roommate, Trenton Jermaine Williams, 22. They said he stole more than $300 to open up car insurance policies with an insurance company.

Bullock was released from the Cumberland County jail after posting a $30,000 secured bond.

    She should be ashamed! There is a little three letter word she should really familiarize herself with: Job. How sorry to steal, but worse, to steal from an elderly person. Heartless.

    Its like she robbed her own grandmother. Praying that she learned from this. But I doubt it. So she needs to save the tears because she knew right from wrong and did it any way. i hope they find her roommate and charge her also. 1 year in prison would be good for the both of them.

    ++++It's a good thing the senior is still sharp and noticed it right away or she likely would have taken everything he had. Them tears aint gonna help you now. I wanna know how she made bail if she couln't pay her light bill or his insurance? All I can do is shake my head in disgust.
    not my real name

    Some people are sharp...but do NOT have the money to fight such as this...which is sad....what goes around will certainly come around....eventually....

    What is interesting to me is how some people can do things to people and GET BY WITH DOING IT....attorneys and those who are SUPPOSE to enforce the law....can do things "legally and lawfully"....just because....NOT because it is really legal and lawful....interesting....just how the wheels of justice keep spinning.....there is CORRUPTION AND COVER UP everywhere...and especially within government agencies....

    Glad they were caught, but it's only because they won't very smart. I look forward to the day when there is enough prison space to keep people like this when they're caught. I know it'll cost more taxes, but, until something is done, they'll just walk away, richer, and the money they spend on probation goes to the govement, not the victim in all cases.

    In responce to Mountainlover. I agree, put a big sign on their backs and walk them down the road picking up trash. But then again maybe just plant them
