Hubbard County jailer/dispatcher charged with three felonies, placed on leave
Park Rapids Minnesota PO Box 111 56470

A longtime Hubbard County jailer/dispatcher is facing three felony charges in connection with her ex-husband's bank accounts and has been placed on administrative leave.

Lana Jo-Lynn O'Bannon, 44, of Park Rapids, formerly known as Lana Jo Yliniemi, was charged last month by Becker County.

She is charged with check forgery and theft of property, both punishable by a maximum of 5 years and/or a $10,000 fine and fraudulent use of a financial transaction card, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years and/or a $20,000 fine upon conviction.

The charges stem from complaints made by Dale Yliniemi, a Becker County resident, of a suspected theft and forgery that occurred on his bank account last summer.

She has been summoned to a court appearance April 25 in Hubbard County. The Hubbard County Attorney's office turned the case over to Becker County for investigation and prosecution because of a conflict of interest.
