East Texas Woman Poses As Hurricane Evacuee

An East Texas woman gets probation for posing as a Hurricane Katrina evacuee. United States Attorney Matthew Orwig says 29-year-old Tomisha Embry of Longview told FEMA she was a New Orleans evacuee and had significant property damage.

The U.S. attorney says Embry received a check for two thousand dollars, but it turns out, she never lived in New Orleans. She's been given 3 years probation, and must pay the two thousand dollars back to the government.
