Marmaduke Woman Arrested, Accused of Stealing Tornado Relief Items

MAY 1, 2006 - Posted at 7:43 a.m. CST

 

MARMADUKE, AR - A Marmaduke woman faces a theft charge that accuses her of stocking up on canned goods and other disaster-relief items after claiming her home was destroyed in the April 2 tornado.  Police say Melody Henn took donated items on at least three occasions from Marmaduke High School or Marmaduke City Hall.

Police say the woman's rental house was not damaged by the storm or at most had only two broken windows.  Henn has pleaded innocent to the charges.

Marmaduke Police Chief Steve Franks says his department has received several complaints from the American Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency about people making fraudulent claims of damage and loss.
