Destiny Leigh Kelley

A Cedartown woman was jailed on several charges after she was alleged to have take a family member’s unemployment money.

Cedartown Police reported that Destiny Leigh Kelley, 22, of 105 Prior St., was jailed on the charge after being taken into custody around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The charges stem from a complaint that began in late October 2020, when Kelley was alleged to have gotten hold of the victim’s unemployment card info and then used it to take more than $960 in money via withdrawals from the bank, and sent more than half via a fake account through a cash app.

That fake account was setup in the name of another relative of the victim, the report stated.

Kelley remained in the Polk County Jail on felony charges of financial transaction card fraud, her bond was dropped, and a misdemeanor charge of theft by receiving stolen property.

Bond was set in her case at $9,350.
