On 12/19/13 BCSO investigators were notified by a resident of Woodshole Circle that his checking account had been compromised and used to make multiple purchases from Amazon.com After obtaining court orders for information from Amazon, Inv Dusty Williams was able to identify the location where the merchandise had been shipped to, an apartment in Foxridge Apts under the name of a male.
Deputies executed a search warrant on the apartment and seized multiple items purchased with the fraudulently obtained information. Shabrina Maybell Fields, 23 yoa of Packinghouse Rd Statesboro Ga, was taken into custody at that time.
