Police Arrest Woman Outside Target; Card Fraud Suspected

Suisun City woman found to have felony arrest warrant from another county.

A 20-year-old Suisun City woman was arrested at Vintage Oaks shopping center Tuesday afternoon after a store employee reported a suspected gift card fraud in progress, said.

Officers responded to the store at 11:19 a.m. after a security officer reported suspicious activity during a purchase, said police Sgt. Jennifer Welch. Officers obtained a description of the suspect and contacted her in the parking lot, Welch said.

An investigation revealed that Dewana Racettajean Maxie appeared to be using pre-paid gift cards that had been recoded with credit card account information belonging to other people. The investigation also showed she had a felony warrant out for her arrest from another county.

Maxie was arrested and booked at Marin County Jail. She faces felony charges of burglary via obtaining credit by use from another person’s identification and receiving stolen property worth more than $200. She was also found to have burglary tools in her possession, a misdemeanor.

Police will continue to investigate the matter, according to a release.

You guys still don't get it. I'm just a blue collar furniture mover, who works 60 hours a week and never asked for any help from others, only to notice that many people I see now don't work very hard, if at all. Jerry's kids get first crack at my sympathy, but anyone who's living off the system takes a back seat. Every time I post about parasites, someone lets me know that there are exceptions. This is true, but many others use excuses to get a free ride. That's what I object to, and I don't want more freeloaders taking my taxes for their lifestyle. People have the right to do whatever they want, but if they want me to pay for it, I have the right to object.

I find it Hard to believe, with all the recent crime, that there are still people with their heads DEEP in the sand. I will pray for their souls.

Craig , I've voted against SMART just because it doesn't make any sense and I wouldn't use it , but I pulled this from the repeal SMART webpage " We are offering a job to anyone of voting age in Marin or Sonoma to work as a petition-circulator. We will pay you $1 per valid signature. Our volunteers average 10-15 signatures per hour. If you would like a job for the next couple of weeks, please go to repealsmart.org for more information." It kind of looks like both sides are using paid "THUGS", which I guess makes sense , a young woman or an older lady might be able to get alot of signatures and make some good money.

20,000 out of Novato's 28,000 registered voters did not even vote in the last council election. Just what will it take to get their heads out of the sand? Talk about giving away the farm!

The problem is not SMART. The problem is the welfare felon housing imposed by ABAG. Kill ABAG! They are not elected officials, but they have more power over our community than do elected officials, state and local. Support SMART, kill ABAG!
