A California mother and daughter have served their jail sentences after being accused of participating in a bank scam.

Dannette and Jessica Tanner each ended up serving 129 days in jail, after each of them pleaded no contest to one reduced misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to obtaining goods by false pretenses.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in September, Jessica went to the First Interstate Bank, near the Eastridge Mall in Casper, handed a teller a credit card and ID and wanted to make a cash advance on the card.

The teller was aware of a fraudulent scam that was going on, and also knew that Tanner’s name had been used in fraud activities at other banks in Wyoming and in Montana.

Law enforcement was contacted and Jessica was arrested, while Dannette was arrested later that same day.

Police later learned that there was a similar attempt earlier in the day, at the Bank of the West branch, across the street from the mall.

The FBI also emailed investigators security camera video from a Cheyenne bank, showing that Jessica had been there the day before her arrest, trying to do the same thing.

Police say when interviewed, Jessica admitted to being in another town the day prior, trying to do the same thing.

Police also indicated that Dannette admitted to being involved in a bank scam with fraudulent credit cards, but claimed not have intimate knowledge of the scam, and that she and Jessica were traveling with a third person.

That person ended up being Rashaan Burton, who was sentenced to serve 18-to-24 months in prison, after he pleaded guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit forgery.
