A woman is in trouble with the law for stealing a $150 cell phone last month and then tricking a woman to trade for it the next day, officials said.

Felisha M. Warrelmann swapped a Metro PCS LG Motion cell phone she stole from Nia Vasquez on Aug. 24 even up for a $499 HTC Wildfire cell phone owned by Kimberly Miller on Aug. 25, officials said.

Miller told police Warrelmann, using the name Felisha Davis, "deceived" her into making the deal in a home in the 800 block of Kossuth Street in Freemansburg, Northampton Co., after arranging a meeting through an Internet Web site and Facebook, officials said.


Warrelmann sold the Wildfire cell phone and a white iPod Nano for $15 at the EZ Money Pawn Shop, 20 West 4th St., Bethlehem, on Aug. 26, officials said.

Police recovered the LG Motion phone from Miller and the Wildfire phone from the pawn shop, officials noted.

Warrelmann, 19, of 604 Main St., Freemansburg, was arraigned Friday on charges of criminal trespass, receiving stolen property, theft and theft by deception and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $10,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 10 a.m. Sept. 11.
