A woman has been charged with scamming a woman who owns and operates Saving Grace K9s out of more than $23,000.

Sue Lee Roberson, 55, of Granite Quarry, is charged with one count of obtaining property by false pretenses.

According to the report at the Rowan Sheriff's Office, Roberson told the operator of Saving Grace K9s that she needed the money, a total of $23,978.97, to set up a video production called "Heroes On The Edge."

Roberson also said the money would be returned once the production was completed.

Investigators say the video production company was not aware of the project, never received any money, and was not involved with Roberson.

Roberson was charged and has been released on $5,000 bond.
