Mother, daughter arrested on suspicion of credit card fraud at Cache Creek Casino

Two women are in custody after allegedly committing credit card fraud at the Cache Creek Casino Resort, authorities said.

The mother-daughter pair were arrested on suspicion of burglary, grand theft, unauthorized use of a credit card and conspiracy, according to a Yolo County Sheriff's Office news release.

Regina Payne, 44, of Rancho Cordova allegedly completed nine fraudulent credit card transactions totaling more than $34,000 at the tribal casino with the assistance of daughter Keitisha Tucker, 26, a casino cashier.

The transactions occurred between May and September. Sheriff's officials said Payne used multiple fictitious credit cards and a fictitious Illinois driver's license for the transactions.

Both were taken to Yolo County Jail on Tuesday. Payne is being held in lieu of $215,000 bail, while Tucker's bail is $100,000.
