Police in Anchorage announced the weekend arrest of three people they say recently arrived in Anchorage, and had been deploying various scams in Alaska after being wanted in other states.

According to a community release issued by the Anchorage Police Department, 33-year-old Dwight McCullough, 22-year-old Andrea Hall, and 29-year-old Terrance Jefferson were all arrested on Dec. 16 for fraud-related charges.

A spokesperson with APD wrote that the three suspects arrived in Alaska in October, and "were obtaining fraudulent vehicle loans, fraudulent car titles at DMV, and issuing bad checks."

Hall stands charged with two counts of theft, issuing a bad check, and "unsworn falsification." APD said she has an outstanding warrant in Arkansas.

McCullough was charged with the same crimes as Hall, as well as one county of "scheme to defraud." Like Hall, McCullough has outstanding warrants and is a fugitive from Arkansas. In addition, he is also wanted in California and Tennessee.

Jefferson was arrested and charged with scheme to defraud, attempted theft, and unsworn falsification.
