Police were dispatched to Opry Mills Mall on 02/09/18, after being alerted by security to a fraudulent credit card transaction at Forever 21. According to an affidavit, a customer of the mall was alerted that a purchase was just made at Forever 21 for $200 on his credit card, which was in his phone case that he realized wasn’t in his possession.
When the victim confronted the store employee, she recognized the transaction, and was able to point out Dantwaun O’Neal as the person who used the credit card to make the purchase. O’Neal was taken into custody, and he admitted to “finding the credit card in a phone case”. The phone, case, and other belongings were recovered and returned to the victim.
Dantwaun O’Neal was charged with credit card fraud ($1000 bond), theft ($1000 bond), identity theft ($1000 bond), and an outstanding warrant for trespassing ($500 bond), and released via the pre-trial program just before 1AM this morning. He will appear in court on 03/02/18.
