CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - Charlotte County Sheriff’s Narcotics detectives arrested a woman this afternoon who was “ripping off” people on various occasions, taking their money in pretense to buy drugs for them. Molly Rae Lefebvre, 18, Port Charlotte, would set up deals to buy drugs at the Punta Gorda Walmart. Once she got their money in the parking lot, she would drive off keeping their cash.
Detectives learned of the rip-off scheme and an undercover meeting was set up for Lefebvre to get $300 to buy Oxycodone pills. Lefebvre agreed to meet the Narcotics undercover person in the same Walmart parking lot. She arrived in a Toyota Tercel and approached the waiting undercover person who handed her the money to buy the drugs as agreed. Lefebvre took the money and sped out of the parking lot at a high rate of speed only to be followed by several CCSO unmarked units and a marked Traffic Unit. Lefebvre was stopped and detectives recovered the $300 in marked bills in her bra.
She was transported to the Charlotte County Jail and charged with felony Grand Theft. This is her 10th booking into the County Jail. Bond was set at $5,000.
