TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Two people were arrested after a woman in Texas told police her credit and debit cards were being used in Tallahassee without her permission.

According to TPD, the two suspects, Keyosha Rivers and Demetris Weaver, purchased $2,600 worth of furniture from Tallahassee Discount Furniture with the cards and had scheduled to pick up the furniture on November 25.

Weaver is being charged with grand theft over $300 but less than $5,000.
