Vegas Water District Purchasing Agent Indicted for Fraud

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Las Vegas Valley Water District purchasing agent has pleaded not guilty to federal fraud charges alleging that she bought and shipped more than $6.7 million worth of printer supplies to a New Jersey company.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden in Las Vegas says Jennifer McCain-Bray was arrested and arraigned Thursday and freed pending trial Sept. 26 in U.S. District Court.

The 41-year-old McCain uses the name JJ. Her lawyer, Louis Palazzo, didn’t immediately respond Friday to messages.

A grand jury indicted McCain after hearing evidence that for nine year she bought ink and toner cartridges for the water district, relabeled them, and shipped them to the New Jersey company for resale.

In return, the indictment alleges that McCain received money and other things to her personal PayPal account.
