| May 19, 2022

FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – The case against a 44-year-old woman who allegedly admitted to using a man’s debit card has been held for court.

According to court documents, on May 4, the following criminal charges against 44-year-old Kimberly Lynn Armagost, listed as “transient – Franklin,” were held for court:

– Access Device Issued to Another Who Did Not Authorize, Misdemeanor 1
– Forgery – Utters Forged Writing, Misdemeanor 1

The case was transferred to the Venango County Court of Common Pleas.

Unable to post $1,000.00 monetary bail, she remains lodged in the Venango County Prison.

According to a criminal complaint, police received a report of theft from a bank account that occurred sometime between Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10. The victim stated he found his banking information written on a piece of paper wrapped around a card, in Kimberly Armagost’s bag that had tipped over.

The victim also found a slip from a local bank with his pin number he had been waiting for in the mail and had never received. He provided a statement of two separate charges, one for $200.00 to PlayPlusGo, and the second for $60.44 to Meaningful Beauty, which is consistent with Armagost’s previous purchases, the complaint states.

A brief interview was conducted with Armagost where she made an utterance of guilt on her way to Central Court in an unrelated case, claiming she was given permission to access said account, the complaint indicates.

The victim stated at no time was Armagost given permission to access his bank account or use his bank card, according to the complaint.

Armagost was arraigned at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 28, in front of Judge Kirtland.
