Police in Cameron are investigating a case of organized debit card abuse.

Investigators say Amber and Katherine Ellis ran up charges on another woman's debit card, maxing out the card with purchases at a Walmart, Victoria's Secret, and Shoe Carnival, among other retailers.

The owner of the debit card noticed it had gone missing after making a purchase at a Cameron convenience store.

Victoria Ibarra, the clerk at that store, later admitted to going on the shopping spree with the Ellises.

They are charged with organized criminal activity and credit card abuse. Amber Ellis remains in jail on $12,000 bond.

Officials are still investigating the possibility of additional suspects.
