Grandaughter Gets Pinched On Theft By Deception Charge; Accused Of Illegally Obtaining Home Equity Credit Line On Grandma's Home, Then Draining $3K From It

In Boardman, Ohio, The Youngstown Vindicator reports:
  • Township police served a warrant to a Youngstown woman accused of theft by deception against her grandmother.

    Joanna Button, 29, [...] was arrested at her home on the felony charge [...]. Tuesday. She was taken to the Mahoning County jail and is scheduled to appear in Mahoning County Area Court [...].

    The charge, according to a police report, is tied to a case reported in August 2015 in which a female victim, 82, told police that someone opened a home equity line of credit in her name. That person reportedly obtained credit cards tied to the line of credit, and had charged $3,000.

    The arrest report indicates that the victim is Button's grandmother.
