WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A woman wanted in Kentucky in connection with accusations of financial crimes has been arrested in North Dakota.

Williston Police have arrested 30-year-old Yarelis Rios. The Williston Herald (https://bit.ly/21NmHVk ) reports police arrested Rios after authorities were tipped off to her Williston home.

Court records show Rios is wanted in Kentucky’s Fayette County on charges including forgery and obtaining a real estate loan through deception.

Williams County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Caleb Fry says Rios had been on the run for about two years and moved to Williston in October.

Authorities in Kentucky accuse Rios of embezzling thousands from an apartment complex where she was employed and filing false tax returns.

Jail records show Rios was extradited to Kentucky Thursday. Records don’t list an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
