Philly Woman Stole $184K Check From Her City to Pay for a Butt Lift and Vacations

Ashley Stibbins-Parker

Nationwide — Ashley Stibbins-Parker, a 30-year-old woman from Philadelphia, is accused of stealing a $184,000 pandemic relief check meant for the city of Weston. She reportedly used the stolen funds for her personal expenses, including a butt lift and luxury shopping spree.

Court documents reveal Stibbins-Parker set up a fraudulent “City of Weston LLC” bank account in Georgia to funnel the funds back in 2021, according to Local 10 News.

The check, issued under the federal CARES Act, was meant for Weston City Hall but never reached its destination. Instead, it ended up in a Sandy Springs Bank of America account under the LLC’s name.

Authorities allege Stibbins-Parker withdrew over $119,000 from the account shortly after depositing the check. The investigation revealed multiple transactions involving substantial sums sent to individuals and entities, though it’s unclear if others involved were aware of the scheme.

Further investigation uncovered expenditures including a $6,250 payment for a Brazilian butt lift at a Miramar plastic surgery center and plane tickets from Miami to Atlanta. The funds also financed a luxury shopping spree in Bal Harbour, with purchases at high-end retailers.

The Bank of America eventually closed the fraudulent account with a substantial negative balance in June 2021. Stibbins-Parker was later arrested in Maryland and extradited to Broward County, where she faces charges including organized fraud, money laundering, and grand theft.

Currently, Stibbins-Parker remains in custody at BSO’s Paul Rein Detention Facility on a $200,000 bond. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges, and the case is ongoing in court.
