BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Another woman has turned herself in to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, bringing the total to four. One more woman is still wanted by authorities for crimes connected to the removal of more than $260,000 from a Leland man's checking account.

Kenneth Ray Nash told authorities in October 2011 that someone had taken over his personal checking account, according to a post on the Sheriff's Office website.  After a 10-month investigation by the fraud unit, over 1,600 bank transactions were used to identify an in-home health care worker who was assigned to work for Nash by a home health care company.
