WALDORF WOMAN CONVICTED OF THEFT IN
TAX RETURN SCHEME

Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Trecia Lynn Jones, of 6101 Tapir Place, Waldorf, Maryland, has been convicted of felony theft in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County.

Jones, 39, pled guilty before the Honorable Nancy Davis-Loomis. In the court proceedings, Jones admitted to stealing $8,606 from the United States Treasury and $1,468 from Comptroller of Maryland by submitting fraudulent tax returns for the 2002 tax year. On both her federal and state returns for 2002, Jones gave false information relating to her income, itemized deductions, and withholdings. Jones supported her returns with a fraudulent W-2 from an employer she did not work for. Based on the false claims of taxes withheld and false deductions, Jones requested and received refunds from both the federal and state returns.

Judge Davis-Loomis set sentencing for September 7, 2006.

The case was referred to the Office of the Attorney General by the Maryland Comptroller’s Office. It was investigated by the Maryland State Police and is being prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General, Criminal Investigations Division.
