“Career Criminal” Arresed on Fraud Charge

According to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, 46 year-old Teresa Antoinette Hare, a “career criminal” from Inverness, was arrested following a crime spree at several local businesses. According to the agency, a counterfeit money trail led Ms. Hare straight to jail. Hare was charged in 11 cases on June 26, 27 and 28.

On July 26, Ms. Hare was arrested in four cases: 3 warrants for violation of probation (no bond) for possession of methamphetamine; organized fraud, less than $20,000; use of personal identification, uttering a forged instrument and forging or altering an instrument; and 1 warrant for failure to appear on an original charge of driving while license suspended, second conviction ($4,000 bond).

On July 27, Ms. Hare was arrested in six additional cases which included: (1) possession of a firearm by a convicted felon ($10,000 bond); (2) uttering forged bills, checks, drafts, or notes; and forging bank bills, checks, drafts or notes ($4,000 bond); (3) uttering forged bills, checks, drafts or notes; and forging bank bills, checks, drafts or notes ($4,000 bond); (4) uttering forged bills, checks, drafts or notes; forging bank bills, checks, drafts or notes; and scheme to defraud less than $20,000 ($17,000 bond);
(5)†uttering forged bills, checks, drafts or notes; and forging bank bills, checks, drafts or notes ($2,000); and (6) possession of a controlled substance, resisting an officer without violence, attaching a tag to a vehicle that is not assigned to it, and possession of drug paraphernalia ($4,500 bond).

On June 28, Ms. Hare was charged with resisting an officer without violence ($1,000 bond). This offense occurred about 9:45 pm, June 8, according to the arrest report. In this case, deputies, who were aware that Ms. Hare had numerous warrants for her arrest, watched Ms. Hare exit the Homosassa Walmart and get into a white mini-van. A deputy instructed Ms. Hare to exit the vehicle due to her having multiple Citrus County arrest warrants. The report stated that Ms. Hare did not comply with the deputy’s request. Instead, she told the driver of the mini-van to drive away, and the driver complied with Ms. Hare, rather than the deputy. Upon her arrest, Ms. Hare told the deputy she hadn’t complied with the deputy because she didn’t believe he was a law enforcement officer, although he was dressed in the standard green uniform worn by CCSO deputies.
