Three people have been charged in Stone County Circuit Court with various felonies with arrest warrants issued for two of the three.
The court information says warrants for arrest have been issued in two separate cases for Michelle D. Reposa, whose age was not provided, and Matthew D. Trammell, 31.
The case involving Reposa goes back to 2016 and 2017 when the alleged offenses were committed. Those offenses included opening credit card accounts in her ex-husband’s name and using his personal information, then having the cards come to her. The court documents said she then used the cards to purchase items and to obtain cash. The charges in Stone County Circuit Court include two counts of financial identity fraud and one count of fraudulent use of a debit and/or credit card, a Class A misdemeanor. The bond on Reposa was set at $20,000.
The court information says the arrest warrant for Matthew D. Trammell comes from a March 8 incident in which Stone County authorities made a home visit looking for a felony absconder, Sean Harrison. During the process, illegal drugs were suspected in the residence, and a search warrant was used to check the house. The court documents allege that illegal drugs and paraphernalia were found in one room occupied by a female and in the other occupied by Trammell. The court record said that among the illegal drugs discovered were methamphetamine, LSD, and marijuana. A bond for Trammell was set at $5,000.
The other person charged in Stone County Circuit Court was Mountain View resident Gary Duane Smith, 42. The court documents said his charges stem from an incident on March 14 at the Stone County Jail. Apparently, officers were checking a phone conversation between inmate Smith and his girlfriend. Authorities say Smith told the girlfriend where methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were hidden in his bedroom. Police then went to the residence and found the illegal drug and paraphernalia where it was said to be in the phone conversation. Smith was then charged with possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia to use the illegal drug.
Smith’s bond has been set at $15,000.
