DOBSON — Felony charges were dismissed against Mount Airy resident Wendy Kristen Odum the day after she was indicted by a Surry County Grand Jury.

Odum , 48, of Atkins Lane, Mount Airy, was charged with four counts of obtaining property by false pretense in November 2015 for allegedly removing a family member’s EBT card from the mailbox, activating and using it.

According to sheriff’s office reports, the family member had contacted the county social services fraud investigator, who assisted with the investigation.
