11 Named By Nye County Deputy In Bank Theft Scheme

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Nye County sheriff's investigator says authorities have uncovered a scheme involving 11 people in California and Nevada who allegedly siphoned money out of business bank accounts.

Sheriff's Detective David Boruchowitz says it looks like one woman, Mercedes Yvon Moore, 24, of Las Vegas, worked at a bank and
gave account information to a ringleader who lived in Las Vegas and
Compton, Calif.

That woman, Talila Chyna Rodgers, 21, allegedly enlisted others to loot bank accounts from firms in states including California, Florida, Texas and New York.

So far, one Nevada woman has been arrested. Maria Walker, 27, of
Las Vegas, was taken into custody April 4 and released on
unspecified bond pending a June 16 date in Pahrump Justice Court.

The others sought in the case range in age from 21 to 31, and live in Las Vegas and the California cities of Compton, Long Beach and Inglewood.

Boruchowitz says each is wanted on warrant charges of grand
larceny and conspiracy to commit a crime.
