Livingston woman accused of stealing from title company

WOODVILLE, TX (KTRE) - A federal grand jury has indicted a Livingston woman and three men accused of taking part in a conspiracy to steal nearly $400,000 from a Tyler County title company.

Ashley Nacole Reeks, 32, is named in a nine-count indictment with charges of bank theft, conspiracy to commit offenses against and to defraud the United States and conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Wesley Moore, Moses Lopez and Austin Chumley are also named in the indictment.

Reeks was arrested on the warrants early Friday.

According to the text of the indictment, Reeks worked for Tyler County Title, which maintained an escrow account at a Woodville bank. The indictment states Reeks had managing access to the account and from Jan. 4, 2016, to March 30, 2017, the quartet schemed to get money from the account.

According to the indictment, Reeks would issue checks from the account to the other three, as she was an authorized signor on the account. Reeks would then forge a second signature, according to the indictment.

The indictment alleges Reeks conspired to steal $395,599.63.

A court date has not yet been set for Reeks.
