MESA, Ariz. (AP) - A Tempe woman accused of stealing her grandmother's credit card and using it for $2,300 in dental work has been arrested on suspicion of theft and identity theft.

Mesa police say 42-year-old Jennifer Brice was arrested Monday. Police say she admitted to using the credit card without her grandmother's permission and was using her grandmother's car when she found the card inside the vehicle.

Police say Brice allegedly was able to rack up charges on the card after pretending to call her grandmother from the dentist's office to ask if she was allowed to use it.

Police say Brice's grandmother had forgotten about the credit card. They say she has been reimbursed for the dental charges.
