Gwinn woman arrested for credit card larceny

MARQUETTE — A Gwinn woman has been charged with two felonies related to the alleged larceny of a credit card in Forsyth Township, according to a press release from the Forsyth Township Police Department.

Cassandra Ann Hurrell, 29, was arrested Monday without incident at around 3 p.m., police said.

Forsyth Township police responded at 11:20 Monday morning to a complaint by a Forsyth Township woman that her credit card had been used without her permission. The victim was able to provide the name of a possible suspect who had access to her home.

With that information, police went to various merchants and were able to obtain receipts and corresponding in-store video showing the transactions in question, while confirming the suspect was the one identified by the victim, according to the release.

The investigation determined that Hurrell allegedly charged more than $2,500 on the victim’s credit card.

Forsyth Township Police Chief Gordon Warchock said there were 45 transactions linked to the incident but couldn’t comment on the nature of the purchases.

Hurrell is charged with breaking and entering — entry without break with intent, a five-year felony; and stealing/retaining a financial transaction device without consent, a four-year felony.

Hurrell was lodged Monday at the Marquette County Jail.

She was arraigned Tuesday with bond set at 10 percent of $10,000.

Hurrell is scheduled for a probable cause conference at 10:45 a.m., Sept. 27 and a preliminary examination at 11 a.m. Oct. 10.
