MARSHALL COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) — A St. Clairsville woman has been arrested and charged with fraud schemes after allegedly defrauding two Ohio Valley car dealerships.

Moundsville Police Chief Tom Mitchell says the woman facing charges is 19-year-old, Emily Marie Long.

Here’s what allegedly happened this week. 

Police say Long bought a car at the Robinson car dealership at The Highlands with a fraudulent check for more than $1,000. 

Long traded that car in at Straub Ford in Moundsville and bought a new vehicle with another fraudulent check worth over $40,000

She reportedly told the people at Straub that she had received some type of settlement when she wrote out the check.

Police say that ended with her arrest. 

She is being held under a cash-only $10,000 bond in the Northern Regional Jail.
