She closed at least one case — her own!

A fugitive wanted for fraud was busted when she walked into a New Jersey sheriff’s office and asked to be hired, according to police.

Zyeama Johnson, 27, a former Postal Service worker from Jersey City, was on the run for the crime in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, when she applied to work at the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office, according to the Jersey Journal.

She sent in paperwork to be a security guard at the law enforcement agency. She was called into the station under the guise of a job interview and arrested Tuesday, county Sheriff Frank Schillari told the outlet.

After the alleged foolhardy fraudster was busted, the officers allegedly discovered two stolen credit cards and she was also hit with credit card theft charges, Schillari said.
