Lufkin Police officers arrested a 32-year-old Diboll woman Tuesday on a variety of charges, including an arrest warrant out of Christian County, Kentucky that alleged that she took a dead man's debit card and used it 24 times in the two-day period after he committed suicide.

Collectively, Zinnecker's bail has been set at $18,013, which includes a $10,000 for the Kentucky charge.
