One of three people accused in a credit card bank scam has entered a plea in court.

Forty-six year old Rashaan Burton has pleaded not guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit forgery and a charge of possession of a controlled substance.

Investigators say in September, one of Burton’s accomplices, Jessica Tanner, went to the First Interstate Bank near Eastridge Mall, handed a teller a credit card and ID and wanted to make a cash advance.

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

Law enforcement was contacted and Jessica was arrested.

She admitted to investigators that she, her mother Dannette, as well as Burton had perpetrated the scam a number of times, including earlier in the week at a Cheyenne bank.

Officers found meth paraphernalia on Burton when they searched him

He is free on $100,000 bond awaiting trial and could face up to 10 years in prison on the conspiracy charge if convicted.

Meanwhile, Dannette Tanner has pleaded not guilty to similar charges, while Jessica is still waiting to enter a plea.
