NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — More than nine months after two women allegedly stole from men on Broadway in downtown Nashville, authorities announced one of the women was in custody Saturday.
According to the Nashville Metro Police Department, at approximately 3:00 a.m. on May 28, 2022, a man who had been separated from his friends got into an old silver SUV, presumably a Ford Explorer, thinking it was a ride-sharing vehicle.
Later, the victim woke up at the short-term rental and realized that his iPhone and bank card had been stolen, officials said.
Surveillance video from Murfreesboro Pike Kroger shows two women—identified by police as Felicia N. Anderson and Anesha Robinson—using the man’s card at the store at a later date.
Anderson and Robinson face three counts of fraudulent use of credit card and identity theft in connection with this incident.
Then, on June 17, 2022, Anderson and another woman offered to help a man return to his hotel after he had been drinking at a bar, according to authorities.
The victim remembers getting into their light-colored SUV, but he reportedly felt unsafe and was bailed out of the vehicle.
The next day, the man found his credit card had been stolen and used at several locations, including Kroger on Edmondson Pike, police said.
Officials said they reviewed the store’s surveillance footage, which shows Anderson using the victim’s credit card to purchase merchandise and withdraw cash at the checkout.
The case left Anderson facing six counts of fraudulent use of a credit card and six counts of identity theft in this case, authorities reported.
Months later, Metro Police announced that Robinson, 33, had been arrested in Nashville on Saturday, March 18.
Robinson – who was charged with three counts of identity theft, three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card and evading arrest – is being held on $130,000 bail, according to officials.
However, authorities say they are still looking for 34-year-old Anderson, so if you see him or have information on his whereabouts, you are asked to contact Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
