Arrest warrant issued for suspect in silver scam


The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force has secured criminal arrest warrants for a woman accused of selling bogus silver bars to a local business.

Monique Marie Reyna of Corpus Christi, Texas, faces charges of felony theft by fraud and forgery for selling more than 500 bogus one-ounce silver bars last month to a local business for nearly $6,500.

Detectives were able to identify Reyna from evidence they ob tained in the course of their investigation and are in contact with Texas authorities in an effort to locate her.

The task force is continuing to locate a suspect in a similar case, this one involving the sale of counterfeit gold bars.

That incident occurred earlier this month when a male suspect sold three bogus 12-ounce gold bars to a Bossier City business for $4,000.

That suspect was caught on a security camera at the victim’s business.

Anyone who can help police locate either suspect is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 424-4100.

Callers to Crime Stoppers are reminded that they can remain totally anonymous and could be eligible for a cash re ward for information that leads to an arrest.
