RALEIGH, N.C. — A Raleigh woman is facing charges after police say she tried to steal nearly $1 million from the state of Florida.

According to the arrest warrant, Angella Muthoni Chegge-Kraszeski, 33, of 12500 Garden Tree Lane, started up a business to steal from a Florida corporation with a similar name. She used the alias Christina Ann Clay to set up a corporation called Electronic Data Systems in North Carolina and a business bank account with a SunTrust branch in Raleigh, the warrant says.

The Florida state government caught Chegge-Kraszeski when she tried to change the bank account information for the legitimate Florida business and submitted a bill for $925,374.91 on April 2, according to the warrant.

Chegge-Kraszeski was being held Sunday afternoon at the Wake County Jail under a $5 million bond. She was also required to turn over all her passports to authorities.
