A North Vernon teen turned herself in to authorities who are investigating a credit card theft scheme.

19-year-old Natosha N. Sheppard turned herself in to Bartholomew County deputies on Tuesday, says Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department.

Jackson said the investigation stemmed for a report in July of unauthorized charges to a victim’s credit card. Sheppard was interviewed and allegedly admitted to using the victim’s card twice.

Sheppard is facing two preliminary charges of felony theft.
