A scam investigation originating in Douglas, Georgia, led authorities to East Texas, resulting in the arrest of a 61-year-old Texas resident on theft by deception charges. The case involved a fraudulent scheme where the suspect, posing as Bill Miller from New York and claiming to work for Steve Harvey, convinced a 71-year-old Douglas woman to wire money in exchange for a non-existent car. The victim wired nearly $6,000 to a bank in Mount Pleasant, Texas, where Patricia Reyna received the funds. After the victim reported the scam to local authorities, an investigation was launched, leading to Reyna’s arrest during a traffic stop in Texas. She was subsequently transported to Douglas and is currently held without bond in the Coffee County Jail. Chief Deputy Fred Cole expressed the importance of addressing such scams and apprehending those responsible.
