Charges withdrawn against Washington, D.C., woman

Criminal charges against a Washington, D.C., woman who was accused of using a Fayette County woman's personal information to rack up more than $12,000 in credit card charges have been withdrawn.

State police withdrew the charges against Karen Arnett, 51, and refiled them against a different woman, Tawana Malika Jackson, 38, of Brooklyn, N.Y., said Trooper James Pierce of state police at Uniontown.

Jackson is accused of using a Uniontown woman's personal information to obtain eight credit cards that she used to make purchases at retail stores around Arlington, Va., between May 30 and June 4, police said.

Pierce said Arnett initially was charged because Jackson was driving Arnett's car. Police used surveillance video from a store in Bowie, Md., to identify Jackson as the woman they now allege used the cards, Pierce said.

Jackson, who is charged with multiple counts of forgery, access device fraud and identity theft, is wanted on an arrest warrant issued through South Union District Judge Joseph George's office.
