Day care center owner indicted for theft and fraud

The owner of multiple day care centers in Milwaukee was recently indicted on 16 counts of theft and wire fraud.

The 34-year old day care owner was indicted on similar charges in January involving the theft of about $5,000 from the Wisconsin food subsidy program and $24,000 from her child care centers. The woman plead not guilty to the charges and a trial is scheduled for next January.

The more recent charges accuse the woman of taking around $275,000 from state and federal child care programs.

Police began investigating the woman several years ago due to suspicious activity including building a luxury home with an indoor basketball court and pool and driving a Jaguar convertible.
