Big Rapids man, Reed City woman arrested in credit union scam

REED CITY  — Two people are facing felony charges for allegedly defrauding a credit union in

Osceola County.

Roger Lee Hubbard, 34, of Big Rapids, and Shannon Marie Burrows, 34, of Reed City, were arraigned Tuesday in Osceola County's 77th District Court.

Hubbard and Burrows were each charged with four counts of using a financial transaction device for fraudulent withdrawals/transfers of $1,000 or more but less than $20,000.

According to court documents, the charges state Hubbard and Burrows knowingly used a financial transaction device to withdraw or transfer funds from an account at West Michigan Credit Union with the intent of defrauding the credit union. The alleged incidents took place in June 2015 in Reed City.

The felony charges carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 or three times the amount of the funds withdrawn or transferred, whichever is greater. However, Hubbard faces twice the maximum penalty because of prior convictions. In 2001, Hubbard was convicted of felony attempted uttering

and publishing in Gratiot County. In 2010, he was convicted of unarmed robbery in Mecosta County.

Hubbard's bond is set at $100,000, while Burrows' is set at $80,000. They both have preliminary examinations scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 2, in Osceola County's 77th District Court.
