The Carson City Sheriff’s Department says a woman who formerly worked for a Mound House vinyl products manufacturer, but then illegally tried to become its owner, wound up being arrested at a local bank. Sheriff’s reports indicate that Helen Kelly, 76, brought in documents to the vinyl company’s bank indicating that ownership was changing to her name. And that $80,000 in the company’s bank account would, therefore, be transferred to her.
Despite a signed document by the Nevada State Secretary of State’s Office acknowledging the ownership change, the bank, in “an abundance of caution,” told Ms.Kelly to come back after all documents were reviewed. The bank then did some research of its own and they called the Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s deputies met Ms. Kelly at the bank and arrested her on suspicion of entering fictitious documents, and attempting to obtain money under false pretenses.
Ms. Kelly is scheduled to appear in court at 9am, Tuesday, September 10th.
