CHURCH HILL A month long pizza binge landed a Hawkins County teen in jail after she allegedly bought pies in Church Hill on 18 separate occasions this past June using a debit card number stolen from the online boyfriend she was scamming.
Heather Nicole Arnold, 19, 145 Lynch Road Lot 9, Church Hill, allegedly gave the online boyfriend a bogus name, and used a bogus Facebook profile during that online romance earlier this year.
CHPD Detective Kevin Grigsby said Arnolds phony Facebook page used photos that Arnold allegedly pirated from a Destin, Fla. womans Facebook profile.
The Florida woman has blond hair and many of her photos used in the Arnolds phony Facebook profile are in revealing beach attire. There is a distinct physical contrast between Arnold and the Florida woman, Grigsby noted.
The victim, who resides in Greene County, reported the fraudulent use of his debit card number to the Church Hill Police Department in July.
Aside from the Church Hill pizza purchases, Arnold also reportedly has charges pending for pizza purchases made on the victims debit card in Kingsport, as well as at least one cash withdrawal made in Washington County.
The victim told Grigsby that in early June he and his online girlfriend, who he knew as Emmie Lowe were supposed to meet for the first time.
Prior to that first date she asked for his debit card number so she could order pizza, and she said she would pay him back when they met for the date.
Emmie Lowe never showed up for the date. The victim stated that Emmie made several dates with him, but she never showed up for the dates. Subsequently 18 pizza purchases showed up on his debit card account, including four from the Church Hill Dominos between June 12 and June 24; and 14 from the Church Hill Pizza Plus between June 12 and June 27.Grigsby stated in his report that the total amount of the Church Hill pizza purchases was $456.46.
The pizza was allegedly ordered under several different names including Emmie Lowe and Arnolds real name. Arnold also allegedly used her actual address at the time on Messick Avenue in Church Hill.
On July 31 Grigsby went to the Messick Avenue address, and although Arnold wasnt there, Grigsby spoke to Arnolds mother, sister and brother-in-law.
All parties advised that they received pizza purchased by the defendant (Arnold) with a credit card that they presumed she had permission to use because it belonged to her boyfriend, Grigsy said. They never met the boyfriend, but were told by Arnold that his name was Matt and that he was out of state in the Army. They also verified that Arnold did have a fake Facebook profile under the name Emmie Lowe.
Grigsby added that when he viewed the Emmie Lowe Facebook page it listed her as being in a relationship with the victim.
The victim stated that when he gave the card information he thought it was to Emmie Lowe and not the defendant, Grigsby said. The victim states he does not have any knowledge of the defendant, and if he knew she was somebody other than Emmie he would not have given out his information.
Arnold had been wanted by the CHPD since July. She was arrested at her Lynch Road residence Wednesday night on 18 counts of identity theft.
As of Thursday she was being held in the Hawkins County Jail without bond due to charges pending in other jurisdictions. Her arraignment in Hawkins County Sessions Court is set for Oct. 16.
More East TN goodness.
That’ll fill out her legs and give her some curves!
She's going to have to aim a little higher than that if she's going to make a career out of crime. Perhaps she should consider government work instead.
-— Prior to that first date she asked for his debit card number so she could order pizza, and she said she would pay him back when they met for the date.
Emmie Lowe never showed up for the date ——
Who wouldn’t fall for this ingenious scam?
Guilty, no possible BJ Clinton post-POTUS pardon.
“Who wouldnt fall for this ingenious scam?”
Cletus done got suckered.
She has her application in for Obamacare navigator.
That’s Frank Fritz from American Pickers
He’s lucky, they usually wait until after the ceremony to get fat.
” There is a distinct physical contrast between Arnold and the Florida woman”
Translation: she looks like a tubby troll in reality.
“Prior to that first date she asked for his debit card number so she could order pizza, and she said she would pay him back when they met for the date.”
The only woman you give your credit card info to before a date is a hooker, and even then you’d better be careful.
Well, that explains why she felt the need to pretend to be someone else, at least.
I always thought Churchhill, TN was one word.

Looks like your typical Obama voter.
Perhaps she should consider government work instead.
Skip the boring day job; run for high office. She’s a U.S. senator in the making.
I wouldn’t exactly call this a ‘romance.’
Wanna bet this is an 0bama voter?
