RALEIGH — Raleigh police arrested a Wake Forest woman Tuesday on charges that she had posed as the chief executive of a New York-based stock-trading company and tried to have more than $15 million wired from the company's accounts to her personal account.
Detectives arrested 43-year-old Angela Maria Dozier-Carter at a New Bridge Bank office at 4505 Falls of Neuse Road and charged her with two counts of attempting to obtain property by false pretenses and one count of obtaining by false pretenses.
The story told in arrest warrants is that Dozier-Clark, of 1454 Cimarron Parkway in Wake Forest, told bankers that she was the chief executive officer of Cede & Co., a New York-based company that acts as a clearing house in stock transactions.
Police say that on July 3 she was able to get $400 transferred to an account at New Bridge Bank.
On two occasions between then and Tuesday, the warrants said, Dozier-Clark tried to get $14 million and $1.5 million moved from Cede accounts to hers.
Neither transfer happened.
Dozier-Clark was taken to the Wake County Detention Center and was being held in lieu of $500,000 pending a first court appearance Wednesday.
State prison records show Dozier-Clark, with a last name of just Dozier, has several convictions in Franklin County, most recently in 2003 for illegally obtaining property and for assault with a deadly weapon on a government employee in 2000.
She finished a prison sentence in 2006.
