Las Vegas Woman Indicted in Vehicle Title Fraud Case

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- A Clark County grand jury has indicted a Las Vegas woman on charges connected to vehicle title fraud.

The jury indicted Ana Carolina Ojeda, 43 of Las Vegas on nine counts of forgery, three counts of establishing or possessing a financial forgery laboratory, three counts of offering a false instrument for filing or recording, and two counts of obtaining and using personal identifying information for unlawful purposes.

Ojeda was the owner of three vehicle registration businesses in Las Vegas. According to Department of Motor Vehicle investigators, Ojeda falsified documents and used a stolen or forged DMV stamp, which allowed two illegal transfers of vehicle ownership in April of this year.

After the first transactions were discovered by an alert DMV technician in the title office, the Attorney General's Office brought in Metro Police to further investigate.

During an undercover operation, Ojeda performed several more illegal transactions for undercover officers, Metro Police said.

The judge set bail at $20,000, and Ojeda's next court date is January 14.
