Lora Ann Green

BOONE COUNTY — A woman was charged in the attempted use of a debit card at a convenience store in the Madison area on March 10.

Lora Ann Green, 34, who has a post office box listed in Madison, was charged with felony fraudulent use of device after police say that she tried to use a debit card in an ATM machine and then made an attempt to purchase cigarettes, according to a criminal complaint prepared by Patrolman JW Browning of the Madison Police Department.

The complaint states that the clerk at the convenience store noted that the card reader gave an error that requested the clerk to hold the card, because it had been reported as stolen.

The complaint states that Green stated that the card was hers, but the clerk noted that the name on the card was clearly that of a male. Green then claimed the card belonged to her boyfriend. The clerk advised her that he could pick up is card if he brought his ID to the store.

As the suspect left the store in a red Chevrolet truck, the clerk called the Madison Police Department, according to the report.

Green has a case pending in Boone County, related to a separate incident where she was charged with identity theft and forgery on Feb. 10, also investigated by Patrolman Browning.

Prior to the most current charges, Browning investigated the case and observed surveillance video footage from the store to support the statements of the clerk on duty.

As of CVN print deadline, Green was not held at Southwestern Regional Jail.
