JACKSONVILLE (ActionNewsJax.com) -- Investigators say she lied about cancer to take people's money. Now detectives at the Clay County Sheriff's Office say Mary Ann McCall lied to them and she's facing new charges.
On Wednesday morning, Mary Ann McCall went back before a Clay County judge. She's already facing two counts of felony fraud for lying about cancer for money. Now, investigators tell Action News she lied to them, too.
According to Clay County detectives, a burglary report filed in June is bogus.
According to deputies, McCall filed an elaborate report complete with a 911 call, a staged break-in, and long list of high-dollar items authorities now say were never stolen.
Detectives say she wasted your tax dollars to investigate this staged burglary for months.
Among the items McCall reported as missing to deputies: a 60-inch TV, DVDs, video games, an iPad, $5,000 of jewelry, a $1,000 coin collection, thousands of dollars worth of narcotics, and two laptops.
Action News has learned that June phone call was not the only report McCall made to authorities. According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, McCall called detectives back a few weeks after her first call and then again in August to report more missing items.
This time, she claimed that her son's $4,000 Samurai sword was stolen.
Detectives investigated her claims for months--and got nowhere. Now, they say they know why.
According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, McCall's former roommate confirmed to police that the items McCall reported stolen are still in her home.
Action News also found two other burglary reports made at McCall's home in 2008.
Right now, she's being held in the Clay County Jail on more than $250,000 bond.
