    She should have been processed then made to pay the money back after apologizing…..then get the shit beat out of her by the people she stole from!

    • Andy Pat

      Wow! Really! What should be the penalty for selling your country down the river to make some extra money on real estate deals???

      • Richard Zigari

        what does that have anything to do with someone stealing a credit card and using it illegally? Are you one of those wussy crybaby liberals, still bitching because you lost the election?

      • Andy Pat

        it has to do with crime and punishment; it has to do with law and order
        now if a petty thief deserves what you say what does one who betrays their country deserve?
        Not that hard of a question

      • Richard Zigari

        Petty thief or what have you…..it shouldn’t be done. Not sure what your parents taught you but you just don’t steal. Bottom line . Yeah my idea of a punishment may sound harsh, but if she was my kid and did something like that. I’d beat the shit out of her.

        Maybe she wouldn’t do it again.

        Take a life …..lose your life.

        Please stop talking about a president that you don’t like. It still has nothing to do with the discussion.

        Oh and I’m sure Mrs Clinton had no blood on her hands to further her agenda. See again that has nothing to do with what this thief did.

      • Richard Zigari

        The same for deleting information requested in an investigation.

        Also please what would your evidence be that the country was sold?

        You mean like Mr Obama….yes Mr Obama ( he wasn’t my President) giving all the money back to Iran?

      • Andy Pat

        I believe Clinton was investigated for many things. I think it was essentially a “witch hunt” that I believe resulted in no charges. Your lying POS of a president should be half as fortunate when his investigations is over. I think in addition to his crimes related to the election, many of his financial crimes will also be exposed. Maybe you and I should have a little friendly bet as to the end results?

    Here’s the arrest info for the credit card fraud charges.


    Here is the link for the horse stealing charges below.

    Woman accused of stealing 2 horses, taking them to Pa.

    A 25-year-old Ocean County woman has been charged with stealing a
    pair of horses she had previously owned from farms in Jackson and Howell
    townships, police said.

    Katie Meo, of Toms River, was charged Monday with burglary, theft,
    criminal mischief and criminal trespass, police said. The horses were
    recovered safely in Pennsylvania, police said.

    Police were called at 9:15 a.m. on June 8 to the Crack of Dawn Farm
    on Grawtown Road in Jackson after a horse was reported stolen from the
    property overnight, police said.

    The thief allegedly cut through the fence on a remote part of the
    property and then stole the horse, which was recently the subject of a
    now settled court dispute, police said.

    While officers were investigating the theft, they learned that a
    second horse had been reported stolen from another property in Howell
    Township on the same night, police said. That horse had also been owned
    by Meo, police said.

    After the reports of the incidents circulated on social media, both
    horses were located at a stable in Pennsylvania where Meo paid to have
    the horses boarded, police said.

    Meo was already being lodged in the Camden County Jail on undisclosed
    charges when she was charged in the thefts. She is currently being held
    in the Monmouth County Jail. No bail has been set.
