Second indictment for East End con woman

Nydia Vega

A 63-year-old woman accused of writing thousands of dollars in bad checks to East End businesses, including a motorcycle dealer in Riverhead last year, will be indicted for a second time Tuesday morning, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota.

Mr. Spota did not specify what charges Nydia Vega will face at tomorrow’s indictment, which is scheduled at 9:30 a.m at Suffolk County Court in Riverside . She has already pleaded not guilty to a slew of theft charges including two counts of third-degree grand larceny. She has been held at the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside since September.

Ms. Vega bounced a check when purchasing an $18,900 motorcycle from Eastern Harley Davidson on Route 58 in Riverhead in May 2009, according to Mr. Spota. She allegedly had intended to give the motorcycle as payment for work being performed on her Westhampton Beach rental home.

Ms. Vega was nabbed after she was caught trying to skip out on a meal in Monmouth, N.J., officials said.

Ms. Vega also goes by the aliases Nydia Neubauer, Nydia Vega Reeves, Nydia Rothschild and Lucy George, authorities said.
