A woman is learning about a crime charge in Oklahoma for not returning a VHS tape of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” more than two decades ago.
The woman and former Oklahoma resident Caron McBride allegedly rented the VHS tape from a store in Norman Town, Cleveland County, in 1999 and never returned it.
The rental shop, unsurprisingly, is no longer in business, FOX 25 reported. But Cleveland County officials are technically capable of prosecuting Ms. McBride for the tape.
However, the Cleveland County District Attorney is reportedly not pursuing the charges in the decades-old case.
Ms. McBride found that Oklahoma officials filed the charges and a warrant in 2000 after the VHS tape had expired.
Ms. McBridge told FOX 25 she was unaware of the VHS tape and the allegations until she attempted to change the name on her driver’s license after she got married in Texas.
“I emailed them (and) they emailed me and they told me … I had a problem in Oklahoma and this was the reference number to call and I did,” he said Mrs. McBride.
She was asked to call the Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office, told about the charges filed against her by an official.
“He told me the VHS tape was out and I had to make him repeat it because I thought, this is crazy. This girl is kidding me, isn’t she? She wasn’t kidding.”
According to FOX 25, Ms. McBride was charged with misappropriation of rental property crime for the “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” tape.
“I lived with a young man over 20 years ago. He had two sons, daughters aged 8, 10, or 11, and I think he went to get him and didn’t get him back or something, ”Ms. McBride said.
“I’ve never seen that show in my entire life, just not my cup of tea, meanwhile, I’m a wanted criminal for a VHS tape.”
The Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office was contacted for comment by the independent.
