PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a Tucson woman has been indicted in a money laundering scheme.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office announced Monday that a Pima County grand jury charged Courtney Rochelle Ward with money laundering, fraud and forgery.

The AG’s Office began investigating after Ward allegedly began depositing and withdrawing more than $140,000 into bank accounts.

Ward is suspected of making numerous cash deposits of less than $10,000 at multiple bank branches to avoid reporting requirement triggers.

Between August 2014 and July 2015, Ward allegedly deposited nearly $148,000 in cash into bank accounts in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Florida and Washington, D.C.

Ward then withdrew more than $144,000 at various bank branches and allegedly distributed the cash to unknown individuals.

It was unclear Monday if she has a lawyer yet.
