PHOENIX — A Sedona-area woman found herself in jail after using a stolen credit card to pay her boyfriend’s bond.

Jasmine Sizelove, 30, is accused of utilizing a resort guest’s credit card information to post bond for her boyfriend, Michael Ellison, 40, according to a press release.

A man contacted the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office when his credit card was used to bail out an inmate. The victim told YCSO he used his credit card to book a room at a Sedona-area resort on Nov. 28, 2019. A few weeks later, he noticed a charge for a $13,625 bond on his statement.

The transaction occurred on an online bonding website.

The victim did not know Ellison.

Detectives found there were several other attempts to use credit card information from resort guests to post a bond.

The investigation revealed that Sizelove was an employee at the resort where credit cards were attempting to be used from. They also found that the majority of the IP addresses involving the bond payment came from Sizelove’s cell phone.

YCSO detectives reviewed video and audio contact Ellison had with Sizelove. According to a press release, Ellison told Sizelove she was a good “hustler” and asked her to come up with a way to bond him out of jail.

Records showed that in another phone call with Ellison’s sister, he said he needed to get out of jail because he is facing up to “15 years in prison.”

Sizelove was booked into the Camp Verde Jail on Dec. 21, 2019, on three counts of fraud and two counts of fraud by impersonation.

She remains in custody on a cash-only $50,000 bond.

Ellison was originally booked into jail on numerous drug-related charges. He remained out on bond while there was pending court action over the fraud case.

However, on Jan. 7, a YCSO deputy conducted a traffic stop and found Ellison inside of the vehicle in possession of stolen jewelry from a burglary in Cornville earlier that day.

He was arrested and booked on a theft charge. Ellison remains in-custody on a cash-only bond of $25,000.

YCSO deputies are working with the County Attorney to reinstate Ellison’s fraudulent bond on his initial drug charges.
