Skimming suspect takes plea deal


One of the defendants accused of planting a card skimmer and video camera on a local bank's ATM has accepted a plea deal and is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 7.

Rhianna Lynn Lawrence, 36, pleaded no contest to two counts of possessing the identifying information of 10 or more people and one count of drug possession, according to court records. Charges of second-degree burglary, altering the serial number on a gun and transporting drugs were dismissed.

Lawrence was one of three people arrested in December after using a skimming device on a Chase Bank to capture bank card and PIN numbers, police have said. Her sister, Dawn Marie Lawrence, is scheduled to have a pre-preliminary hearing March 21.

A 16-year-old was also arrested in connection with the scheme, police said.
