One of the Medford women suspected of stealing a victim's identity to go on a shopping spree at a Minute Market has turned herself in to police.
Tanya Marie Bearden, 23, came to Medford police today, admitting she was one of the suspects in a recent identity theft case, police said.
Bearden has been lodged in the Jackson County Jail on charges of unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, identity theft, fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree theft. She is held on $45,000 bail.
Bearden reportedly broke into a car on Hybiscus Road last week and stole debit and credit cards and a food stamp card that was later used to purchase $90 worth of items at a nearby Minute Market.
Bearden and another woman with her were seen on surveillance videos inside the store
The other woman has been identified, but has yet to be charged with a crime, Medford police said in a news release.
