Hurricane Katrina Victim is a Fraud

SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 -- A Wilmington woman was arrested on Saturday, for claiming she was a victim of Hurricane Katrina. She received money from the Red Cross and the Cape Fear Volunteer Center before she was caught.

Authorities say Felicia Glover went to the Red Cross on Friday, saying that she just arrived from Mississippi.

They say she received a credit card from the Red Cross with over $600 dollars on the card.

After that, we're told the Cape Fear Volunteer Center paid for three nights in a hotel for Glover, and gave her $100 to buy food.

An employee at the El Berta Inn informed the Cape Fear Volunteer Center that they knew Glover.

She was arrested Saturday night at a local hotel. She had three other outstanding warrants as well.
