Iowa State University police made a second arrest last night (Thursday) in what investigator say was a student loan scam. I-S-U police say 26-year-old Candace Walker enrolled as a student on the Ames campus last fall, though she allegedly had no intent to become a student, just to get student loan money and skip. Walker applied for student loans and qualified for more than ten-thousand dollars, though it’s still unclear how much she received. Police say Walker never attended a class. Investigators say her boyfriend, 35-year-old Shawn Pickett, was arrested Wednesday for taking more than ten-thousand dollars from Walker’s account. Both are now charged with theft and criminal conduct.
