Following a two month investigation a Johnston County woman has been arrested on identity theft charges.  In October, the victim received a letter from her financial institution saying she had insufficient funds in her banking account.

The victim discovered someone had fraudulently used her VISA debit card to remove money from the account.

On December 16th, Jessica Katrina Wiggins, 32, of the 14000 block of Highway 39 North, Zebulon was arrested on a single felony count of identity theft.  Wiggins was taken before a magistrate and given a $5,000 bond.
