A dress shop owner turned herself in to Brownsville police after allegedly scamming more than a dozen people from getting their dream dress for their special day.
Families went forward with information about not receiving dresses they paid for.
Janie Mascorro is the owner of Ceci TMs fashion and is behind bars.
An additional 14 complaints from the three original charges were filed after the story aired on June 5th.
Mascorro is now facing seven counts of theft, and each case could lead to class a misdemeanor counts.
Jose Trevino with Brownsville police said the media played a huge role in helping out with the case.
Authorities said that for many families, it means more than money lost.
Mascorro TMs bond is set at $10,000.
