Former 'Gypsy Sisters' Star Mellie Stanley Jailed

Former Gypsy Sisters star Mellie Stanley was arrested Thursday morning in Lexington, KY. The 28-year-old was booked for theft by deception, criminal possession of forged instrument, and unlawful access to a computer. She allegedly pulled off a massive coupon scam at Toys "R" Us and Babies "R" Us. Stanley and her husband, George Lee Jr., used counterfeit coupons to purchase $18,000 worth of items at both stores. Stanley was reportedly transferred to a Kentucky jail where she's being held on $13,000 bail.

This isn't the first time the TLC star tried to get away with coupon scamming. Back in 2014, she and her sister were busted for running a coupon scam at a North Carolina Target.
Gypsy Sisters was an American reality television series on TLC. The series debuted on February 10, 2013.

It followed the daily life of women located in Martinsburg, West Virginia. TLC officially cancelled the series on July 30, 2015 due to low ratings.
