OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say three Omaha residents face fraud charges related to applications for loans intended to help small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Omaha says in a news release that 42-year-old Tamika Cross, 44-year-old Ronnie Cross, and 51-year-old Davida Anderson have been indicted on charges of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and money laundering.

Prosecutors say the three applied for more than $2 million in loans through the Paycheck Protection Program for businesses that were not in operation.

Officials say they received about $489,000 in forgivable loans.
