— A Wilson County woman was arrested Wednesday for allegedly writing a bad check to a dealership in April for a new car

Terri Harrison Robbins, 48, wrote a check of $24,072.47 to Toyota of Goldsboro for a 2008 Toyota Camry in early April, Goldsboro police said. The check was returned because the bank account on which it was drawn was closed.

On April 9, police issued an arrest warrant for Robbins, charging her with obtaining property by false pretenses. Investigator Nelson Viera recovered the Camry and returned it to the dealership.

On Wednesday, Robbins was arrested on unrelated charges in Wilson County, then transported back to Wayne County.

Robbins was given a $6,000 secured bond at her first court appearance. She was being held in the Wilson County Jail Thursday morning.
