A Gaston woman wanted by the Weldon Police Department for identity theft and other related counts surrendered to the Halifax County Sheriff’s Wednesday night, Chief Christopher Davis said.
Brooklyn Simone Fields surrendered shortly before 6:30, received a $7,500 secured bond and September 28 court date. Halifax County Detention Center records indicate she is currently not in custody.
On Wednesday Davis reported the Gaston woman was wanted for stealing money from her employer and guests that stayed at the motel where she worked over a two-month period.
More than $20,000 had been taken via a mobile app that the 27-year-old Fields used.
The police department received the report on Friday shortly after 6:30 p.m. and Corporal I. Smith responded to the business located in the 1600 block of Julian R. Allsbrook Highway.
Smith learned Fields used the app to pocket the motel’s money as well as the money of guests by charging them for amenities they didn’t receive.
Fields currently faces charges of larceny by employee, obtaining property by false pretense, and identity theft.
