Card abuse brings felony counts

December 8, 2012

A victim report led to a 45-year-old Granbury woman being charged with two felony counts of credit/debit card abuse against two individuals – including one card on which approximately $16,000 was charged – Granbury Police Department Deputy Chief Alan Hines said.

Tammy Luann Garrett, of the 300 block of East Barton Street, was arrested by police officers on Nov. 29 at her home, Hines said. Hines said the owner of one of the credit cards came to the Police Department with the complaint.

“During the investigation it was discovered that the preliminary dollar amount of the debit/credit case is around $16,000,” Hines said, noting he second victim was age 65 or older. Because of her age, that offense is a third-degree felony.

The alleged offense involving the other card is a state jail felony. Both victims are members of the same family, Hines said.

He noted that “the dollar amount does not come into play except for restitution.”

FIREARM OFFENSE

A convicted felon pulled over while driving on Nov. 28 by Granbury police on a traffic stop was arrested after officers found a shotgun at his residence, according to Hines.

Allen Wayne Williams, 51, of Granbury, was pulled over in the 1100 block of West Pearl Street at about noon.

“During their investigation (officers) located in the vehicle was drug paraphernalia,” Hines stated. “Mr. Williams gave consent to search his residence and located in a room was a double-barrel shotgun belonging to Mr. Williams. During the investigation it was determined that Mr. Williams has previously been convicted of a felony offense.”

Williams was charged with a third-degree felony count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, Hines said.

Hines indicated that Williams was also charged with a Class B misdemeanor.

Meth charge

A female passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over by a Granbury Police officer on a traffic stop on Nov. 21 was arrested and charged for suspicion of having methamphetamine, Deputy Chief Alan Hines said.

Dawn Denise Dunlap, 29, of Tolar, is facing third-degree felony – possession of a controlled substance, Penalty Group 1, more than 1 gram/less than 4 grams, according to jail booking records.

The stop for the traffic violation was in the 600 block of East Pearl Street in Granbury.

“During the investigation, (the officer) observed a bag that contained a clear crystal substance believed to be methamphetamine,” Hines said.

The driver was not charged because the bag was in Dunlap’s purse, Hines said. Dunlap was also charged with a Class B misdemeanor, possession of less than 2 ounces of marijuana.
