Pawned stolen gun might lead police to fraud suspect

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A woman wanted in Craighead County for theft and fraud charges has now added felon in possession of a firearm to her warrants list.

According to the Craighead County Sheriff's Department, 33-year-old Kimberly Holman racked up more than $15,000 of debt on a family member's credit card.

The first reports of Holman's fraud date back to July 2015 when Holman used a family member's checks to make four purchases. The total amount used from the account at that time was $444.

Police were contacted again on Aug. 1, when Holman reportedly used the same family member's information to open a Bank of America credit card in his name.

She had also stolen two other Bank of America credit cards from him.

The complainant also told investigators that Holman had stolen a check from his mother, which she wrote for $200.

Incident reports also state that there were several times Holman was given checks from a family member to buy $50 worth of groceries, but she instead cashed the checks for up to $100.

The original complainant told police on Aug. 5 that $3,000 had been charged to one of his credit cards and about $15,000 was charged to the other.

He was able to get both of the cards back from Holman.

An employee at Camptown RV and Marine, 6601 E. Johnson Ave., was able to identify that Holman was the person using one of the stolen credit cards at the store.

Holman's family member also reported that his muzzle loader was stolen from his house.

On Aug. 7, investigators were able to get a pawn shop ticket from Hwy 63 Pawn, 9002 Highway 63 North, that showed Holman had pawned the muzzle loader. The ticket was dated for December 29, 2014.

A bench warrant was issued for Holman on Dec. 15 for possession of a firearm by a felon.
