Arnold Police seized $2,310 from a 55-year-old Arnold woman in connection with an alleged internet scam. The money was seized at about 5:35 p.m. May 26 at a home on Henley Heights Court, police reported.
Police from Winston, Ore., contacted Arnold Police after an Oregon man claimed he mailed money to an address on Henley Heights Court. The Oregon man said he was making a purchase over the internet, but after he sent money to the Arnold address, he did not receive the product, the report said.
When Arnold Police went to the home, the woman allegedly admitted to being involved in the scam. She told officers she would receive money by either mail or wire transfer and would keep a portion of the money before sending the rest to different locations throughout the country based on instructions she received from a man she met on the internet, according to the report.
The woman gave officers money she allegedly received from the scam, and Arnold Police sent the money to the victim in Oregon, Capt. Rich Shular said.
After the FBI declined to investigate the case, Arnold Police turned the investigation over to the U.S. Postal Service, Shular said.
