TISHOMINGO, Okla. -- A Tishomingo woman has been arrested accused of running up thousands of dollars worth of charges on her own great-grandmother's credit cards.

Authorities say Jessica King, 21, came under suspicion after they got a call from detectives in Modesto, California, where king's elderly great-grandparents live.

Tishomingo police went to king's house last Tuesday with a search warrant and found everything from cell phones to clothing allegedly paid for with those stolen card numbers.

It is unclear exactly how much those fraudulent charges add up to, but police say king told them it could be more than $50,000.

    This is sad and should be considered elderly abuse. The other sad part is that the credit card company probably won't care.

    She did it to her Great Grandparents!!! She had to do it by identity theft which is a Federal Crime isn't it? My ex-husband used his own son's SSN and ran up bills which our son or I didn't know about until he graduated college with crap credit. How can people do this to their own family? All I can say is that she is a spoiled rotten piece of work to put it nicely. I wish my son had of filed charges and put his *s#@tbag* biological liar of a father in prison or at least pay restitution, or even admit to it. This burns me up!
