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.
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.
Veronica McGee McClain took cash, prescription pain medications and
checking account information from Nash during her employment, the
Sheriff's Office post said. McClain also reportedly enlisted help from
several friends in order to create a debt consolidation, or bill-pay
service, using Nash's funds.
Arrests warrants were issued for the following:
Lisa Veronica McGee McClain, 43
Monica Machelle Frazier, 39
Maria Shaw Sloan, 64
Velda Denise Barnhill, 41
Pamela Denise Springer, 43
Anyone with information concerning the case is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 910-253-2777.
