Charges Announced in Wire Fraud Case

There are charges for an elderly lady in Hawkins who police say tried to use 67 thousand-dollars in library money to buy gold.

Prosecutors yesterday announced charges against 79-year-old Marcia Lyons. Investigators say she originally tried to wire transfer 95 thousand-dollars from the village library’s account to buy gold, but the bank said there wasn’t that much money in the account. She’s accused of then sending 67 thousand-dollars from the library, and 33 thousand-dollars from a family member. Lyons is charged with theft of a business setting and misconduct in office. She is due in court next month.
