The investigation began in January when troopers received a complaint that an individual the victim had met online via an app had manipulated them, resulting in the theft of more than $17,000, New York State Police said.

The investigation determined Ward had directly received proceeds of the crime into her bank account, police said.

Ward turned herself in to police. She was arraigned and released to return to court later.
