OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The owners or directors of six child care centers in Lincoln and Omaha have been accused of stealing more than $350,000 by defrauding a federal program.

Federal prosecutors say five people were charged with theft. Two of them also were charged with money laundering.

They were accused of submitting false claims for reimbursement for dates and times they’d provided care for qualifying children. The children qualified for federal help under the Child Care and Development Fund Program. To quality they have to be under 13 or up to 19 if physically or mentally incapable of caring for themselves, plus live with family members who qualify for the program financially and are working or attending job training or school.
