Warrant: Cary Woman Had Laptops Billed to NC Chief Justice

Posted April 23, 2008

— A Cary woman faces a felony charge for allegedly buying computers and having the bills sent to North Carolina's chief justice.

Chloe Yvonne Brown, 49, of 110 S. Atley Lane, was charged on April 3 with one count of obtaining property by false pretenses.

According to a search warrant, last year, Brown posed as an employee with the state Administrative Office of the Courts and used a bogus purchase order form to buy two Dell laptops.

When Supreme Court Chief Justice Sarah Parker received bills for them, the Administrative Office of the Courts contacted the State Bureau of Investigation, which turned the case over to Cary police, the warrant said.

According to police records, Brown is not employed by the state and does not know Parker.

    My question would be where did she the forms to do this and if she was not a state employee, how did she know how to bill them to the Justice Office, I would investigate in that particular office because it sounds like may be she had someone helping her from the inside.

    OK...if you are going to bill a state office for a fictitious purchase (well, not fictitious but not one they made) wouldn't you be smart enough NOT to bill it to the NC Supreme Court? Bill it to the DOT or some other dysfunctional unit of the state government.

    The lady didn't put much thought into this at all.

    I know where her street is -- we used to live on a neighboring street. Tsk Tsk. Dumb, dumb, dumb. When you decide to be a thief you get what you get punishment-wise.

    Hmm, it takes a certain level of intelligence to commit a fraudulent act like this. However, why did her intelligence not tell her that she would definitely get busted for this? I mean, come on. The Chief Justice? She should get extra punishment for the ignorance.

    First off, where is the sate Administrative Office? Spell check people, spell check.

    Secondly, is she serious that she thought she'd get away with that?? Here's your sign!

    Let me guess. She either had the laptops delivered to her home address, or used her home address or showed her drivers license when making the purchase.

    Dumb and dumber.
