MELBOURNE, Florida -- The Melbourne Police Department has made an arrest in reference to a complaint of a stolen EBT card (also referred to as food stamps).
On April 12, 2012, the victim contacted the Melbourne Police Department to report he had applied for an EBT card and it was to be mailed to the Daily Bread at 815 E. Fee Avenue. The victim stated to police that he never received his EBT card, so he called the state customer service line to inquire why. He was then informed by the state that his card was mailed to the victim’s mailing address, which he listed as 815 E. Fee Ave (Daily Bread). Additional information uncovered a purchase on the card, for $200, which had been made at a Publix supermarket on March 23, 2012.
Melbourne Officers investigated the purchase on the victim’s EBT card. As a result of the investigation, Norma Waters, a Daily Bread employee, was arrested at 9:10AM on July 10, 2012 for theft and fraudulent use of the card. Waters was booked at the Melbourne Police Department and turned over to the Brevard County Jail.
