VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) - Police in Valley City say two Florida women are in custody in connection with a fraud investigation.

Police Chief Fred Thompson tells KOVC-AM the women were arrested following a report that the pair tried to cash a stolen check in Valley City.

Authorities say the Valley City bank teller tried to keep the women busy waiting for police to arrive, but the women fled the bank’s drive-thru.

Thompson says 28 year-old Crystal Rollo of Sunrise, Florida, and 65 year-old Jeanne Reed of Hollywood, Florida, were later arrested in Jamestown after trying to use the same method. They are facing charges of possession of stolen property, counterfeiting and fraud.

The FBI and other local law enforcement agencies are investigating the incidents.
