TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Two Tulsa men have been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly trying to swindle a credit union out of $30,000, announced Steve Lewis, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

Jeremy Wayne Slagle, 20, and Harold Kelley, 23, conspired with a third party in a scheme to bilk the American Airlines Employees Federal Credit Union in Tulsa, Lewis said.

Slagle, a teller at the credit union, conspired with Kelley and a third person, who was to impersonate a credit union member and
withdraw $30,000 from an account, prosecutors alleged.

The third person was to meet with Slagle and Kelley later to split the money, but the alleged scheme was foiled by police and the money was recovered, Lewis said.

In another indictment announced Wednesday, Carol S. Lyons, 49, of Pawnee was indicted for defrauding the Security Bank there of $38,000 between June 1996 and May of this year.

Lyons was an employee at the bank and allegedly put bank income into two personal accounts.
