 SEBRING, Fla. – Following an FDLE investigation, three suspects have been arrested and charged with operating a fraudulent coupon scam resulting in the theft of more than $30,000 at drug stores throughout Central and South Florida. DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation. 

 One suspect, Ramona Foster, produced fraudulent digital and paper coupons that Kenya Morris and Thelma Flint used to purchase gift cards and other items at little to no cost to them.

After the purchases, Morris and Flint provided half of the stolen gift cards to Foster as payment for creating the fraudulent coupons.  Morris and Flint would then sell the items they purchased on social media for cash. 

 FDLE’s Sebring Field Office began investigating after being contacted by Walgreens Loss Prevention.  Morris and Flint targeted drug stores in DeSoto, Charlotte, Lee, Broward, Brevard and Volusia counties.
