Three people from California have been arrested and charged in a plot to illegally obtain money from banks.

Thirty-year old Jessica Tanner is facing one charge of forgery and one count of conspiracy to commit forgery, while 52-year old Dannette Tanner and 46-year old Rashaan Burton each face one charge of conspiracy to commit forgery.

Investigators say on Tuesday morning September 10th, Jessica Tanner went to the First Interstate Bank near the Eastridge Mall, 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.

Law enforcement was contacted and Jessica was arrested.

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

Investigators also determined that not long before she went to the First Interstate Bank, she tried the same scam at the Bank of the West, located not far down the road.

Dannette Tanner and Burton were both eventually found and arrested.

All three are being held on $100,000 bond awaiting trial, and could each face 10 years in prison on each of their charges if convicted.
