ABILENE, Texas - A Clyde woman is charged with two counts of theft in connection to a stolen car and money embezzled from an Abilene business.

According to court documents, 40-year-old Ramona South knowingly used a hot check to purchase a 2008 Tahoe from an Abilene business in December 2011.

After the check bounced, she promised to pay for the car, but allegedly did not.
