Woman arrested after using stolen EBT card

On Wednesday April 25, 2018 at approximately 11:30am Roanoke Rapids Police Department’s Investigator G.L. Williams arrested Minnie Marie Price 54 of Roanoke Rapids for obtaining property by false pretense (2 counts) and food stamp fraud.  Ms. Price was given a $5,000 bond and a May 2, 2018 court date.


The charges stem from a report investigated by Williams; Northampton County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a larceny of an EBT card in April of 2017 from a residence on Sandy Lane.  During the investigation it was discovered that the card was used at two businesses in the City of Roanoke Rapids.
