By Shavonne Walker
SALISBURY — A former Comfort Keepers employee was charged Friday with taking a bank card from a 94-year-old client and accessing money through PayPal, according to the Salisbury Police Department.
Police charged Mia Danielle Thompson, 19, of the 1100 block of Bringle Ferry Road, with one count of felony financial card theft and six counts of felony obtaining property by false pretenses.
The thefts occurred in February, but Thompson was charged late last week after she was pulled over during a traffic stop at the intersection of East 11th Street and Lexington Avenue.
A report said Thompson opened the PayPal account and made multiple transactions. She made a written promise to appear in court today.
