Woman Who Fell In Fountain Appeared In Court Thursday (Felony charges against Fountain Lady)
http://www.wfmz.com/berksnews/26558179/detail.html ^

READING, Pa. -- 69 News has learned the local woman who is now drawing national attention for her videotaped fall into a fountain at the Berkshire Mall appeared in court Thursday for a hearing on criminal charges that were filed against her in 2009.

Cathy Cruz Marrero, who appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" Thursday morning after granting her first TV interview to 69 News on Wednesday, is charged with five felony counts, including theft by deception and receiving stolen property.

She's due back in court April 21.

Police said Marrero, who used to work at Zales Jewelers at the Fairgrounds Square Mall in Muhlenberg Township, used the Zales credit account of someone she knows to make more than $4,000 in purchases without the account-holder's permission.

Marrero also used the same woman's Target credit account to buy more than $1,000 worth of merchandise, said police, who indicated in court documents that the purchases were made prior to August 2007.

What an idiot she is for coming forward.

I suppose it was also the mall’s fault for not stopping her from stealing.

ABC is too busy cheering for Obama with every other TV network including Fox (to a lesser extent) to do any fact checking.

What do you want to bet she fell into the fountain intentionally so she could sue the mall and pay off her stolen purchases before anyone found out?

Now I want to see her run for her local City Council as a Democrat.

Just shows you how lazy these reporters really are. They don't do a simple criminal or background check on a guest like this?

I agree. She is kind of attractive. But. If you listen to her interviews she’s not real bright which makes her guilty.

“Police said Marrero, who used to work at Zales Jewelers at the Fairgrounds Square Mall in Muhlenberg Township, used the Zales credit account of someone she knows to make more than $4,000 in purchases without the account-holder’s permission.”

$4,000 of fraudulent charges at Zales. That means she must have stolen about $800 worth of jewelry.

“Can not decide if she guilty without a picture.”

She was just interviewed on FOX. I’d say her guilt goes beyond any shadow of a doubt.

In the local news report it says she stole the account info from a co-worker at Zales.

That person gave her 2 years to pay it back before pressing charges.

Come on guys, you’re not that stupid. This was staged for fraud. She needs money. Falling in while ‘texting’. Nice touch. She couldn’t just nose dive in. Kind of like waterboarding!
