A woman staying at the Hilton Orlando over the Christmas holiday racked up more than $3,300 in room and spa services on a stolen credit card, according to an Orange County Sheriff's Office arrest report.
Nikita Nicolle Jackson was arrested and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card.
Deputies responded to the International Drive hotel on December 28 after hotel security reported that a guest was suspected of using a fraudulent credit card.
According to the arrest report, Jackson had checked into the hotel on Christmas Eve using a credit card "that was on file from reservations." She didn't have the credit card in her possession but an authorization form was faxed to the hotel, the report said.
While staying at Hilton Orlando, Jackson charged $3,315 in hotel services, including the cost of the room, room service and spa services, according to the report.
The owner of the credit card was notified of the charges. She said she did not know Jackson, and the credit-card company confirmed the charges were unauthorized and the card canceled.
Jackson later told an investigator that a friend had put her up at the hotel for $200 because she was going through hard times, and her electricity was about to be turned off.
