A six-month long investigation by the Nebraska State Patrol has led to the arrest of two Omaha woman on charges of Felony Theft of Lost, Mislaid Items.

Cassandra Wright, 28, and Chudney Knave, 29, were arrested for spending $49,000 mistakenly deposited into the account of their business “Bright Futures Learning & Care,” by the Nebraska Department of Education.

In March, the department discovered the money had been deposited into the wrong account. The funds were intended for a corporate entity with a similar name to the business co-owned by Wright and Knave.

NDE then began eight months of a re-payment agreement for the two women to return the funds. Neither woman responded to the efforts to rectify the error.

An investigation determined that after receiving the $49,000 the two women began transferring funds from their business account into their personal accounts until the money was gone.

Wright and Knave were arrested and are at the Douglas County Corrections Center.
