A man wanted in a financial card fraud case was arrested today while making a court appearance on unrelated charges.

Chief Deputy Scott Hall of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Tyquane Johnson, 24, of Roanoke Rapids was arrested while at court.

Johnson was scheduled to appear in district court today for charges of fail to stop for a stop sign and misdemeanor possession of schedule IV, according to the state’s online court calendar.

For the card fraud case, which occurred on July 6, he was charged with conspiracy to obtain property by false pretenses.

He received a $2,500 secured bond and September 5 court date.

Another man wanted in the case — Bernard Lynne Harris, 57, of Roanoke Rapids — was arrested last week and charged by Detective Sergeant L.E. Mann with financial transaction card theft, financial transaction card fraud and conspiracy to obtain property by false pretense.  

The case revolves around a card stolen in the area of Three Bridges Road and used at two different local ATMs.  

Harris also has a September 5 court date.
