She allegedly used pet owners’ cards.

Police in North Carolina say an employee of Clayton Animal Hospital made more than 200 fraudulent online purchases using the identification and credit card numbers of pet owners and the business’ owner.

Jennifer Nicole Meadows, 30, has been arrested and charged with 15 counts of obtaining property by false pretense and identity theft, according to the Clayton Police Department.

The purchases were made over the span of a month and totaled more than $11,760. Meadows is alleged to have used credit cards from 15 different people to make dozens of purchases.

The purchases were from Amazon and included a range of items, including Coach purses, a Star Wars Chewbacca figure and a Black & Decker cordless drill.
