TIOGA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - In April 2014, Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office Tioga detectives received a report from a local credit union in reference to a case of bank fraud and worthless checks.  

During their 2 month investigation, detectives identified the suspect as Anita Toney, 49, of Alexandria.  Toney had a credit account with the credit union and after a thorough examination of records, detectives discovered Toney had allegedly been fraudulently obtaining cash advances from a third party bank, using her credit union card, according to RPSO.  

Beginning in January 2014, payments were made with knowingly insufficient funds, but enough time elapsed for Toney to repeat the cash advance.  Detectives determined approximately $32,792.26 was obtained by Toney between January and April of 2014. 

 In June 2014, an arrest warrant was issued for Toney and on July 2, she turned herself in to deputies at the courthouse.  Toney was booked for 1 count of Bank Fraud and 1 count of Issuing Worthless Checks >$500.  She was later released on a $5000.00 bond.
