Scheme to Defraud 1st and Petit Larceny Arrests

On April 29, 2021, at about 3:15pm, the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office arrested Carol A. Ziglar, age 25, of 51 South Avenue, Apartment 2, Cortland, New York, on an arrest warrant related to charges of Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree and seven counts of Petit Larceny. It is alleged that Ziglar placed advertisements on Facebook Marketplace in an attempt to sell property. The unsuspecting victims then sent Ziglar money electronically and she refused to send the property originally for sale. It is alleged that the crimes occurred between December of 2020 and February of 2021 when Ziglar resided in the Town of Tyre. It is further alleged that Ziglar stole money from seven different victims in excess of $1,000.

Ziglar was placed in custody by the Cortland Police Department where she was then turned over to Sheriff’s Deputies. Ziglar was transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility where she is being held pending an arraignment in Seneca County Central Arraignment Court.

The case remains under investigation and Sheriff’s Investigators believe that there are more victims in relation to this. If you have any information or believe that you are a victim in relation to this investigation, please contact Lt. Tim Thompson at (315) 220-3449.
