N.Y. FUGITIVE WANTED FOR SWINDLING NEARLY $1-MILLION FROM ELDERLY CAPTURED BY OCSO WARRANT TEAM. #OKCOSO

(Oklahoma City) April 2, 2013 deputies assigned to the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office´╗┐ Warrant Team arrested fugitive Natasha Munchkin Marks (d.o.b. 06/20/1989) who is facing hate crime charges in the state of New York due to her swindling nearly $1,000,000.00 from an elderly man. Marks (aka Crystal Max), has been on the run from New York authorities since October of 2006.

"Our Warrant Team does an excellent job at tracking down fugitives", said Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel. "The fact that now the state of New York will be able to fully prosecute Ms. Max is a testament to the hard work of the Warrant Team."

OCSO deputies received information from investigators in New York City that Marks was likely staying in Oklahoma City. Deputies researched the information and on April 2, 2013 arrested Marks in the 2200-block of NW 22nd Street in Oklahoma City.

Marks case made headlines in New York due to the fact she was able to steal such a large amount of money from her victim, and the fact that the incident was considered a hate crime. A link to one of the stories is below:
