CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Carson City woman has been arrested for her alleged role in a theft operation targeting professional athletes and sports agents.

The attorney general's office says 39-year-old Megan Klein was booked Thursday on charges of identity theft, forgery and theft. It was not immediately known if she had a lawyer.

Prosecutors accuse Klein of being an accomplice for George French Jones, who was charged in Los Angeles in March of fraudulently peddling premium season tickets to Miami Heat games and small ownership interests in the NBA team. Neither tickets nor ownership in the team was for sale.

The attorney general's office says Klein is charged with defrauding a sports marketing agent and an attorney who wired Jones a combined $350,000.

The FBI is also involved in the investigation.
