A Wahiawa woman is among the latest group of people arrested in connection with an alleged investment and mortgage fraud enterprise in North Carolina that stole more than $75 million from investors, financial institutions and lenders.
The FBI arrested Vonetta Tyson Barnes, 38, in Wahiawa Monday. She is married to a Schofield Barracks soldier.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Kevin S.C. Chang granted Barnes release from custody Tuesday on $25,000 signature bond co-signed by her husband.
Barnes returned to court today, turned in her passport and agreed to return to North Carolina for a scheduled court appearance next month.
