LIVONIA, N.Y.- According to WROC-TV channel, Livingston County Sheriff’s deputies arrested travel agent  64-year-old Crystal Dragone, a Canadice native, earlier this week who was accused of taking $26,275 USD from a group of 22 people to book a trip to Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Deputies say it’s further alleged that Dragone took the money from the group but never booked the trip nor the airfare.

She was charged with two counts of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree for taking money from two other customers and not booking their trips nor airfare.

Dragone also faces ten counts of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, two counts of Grand Larceny in the Third degree, and Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree (class E felony).

The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office aided in the investigation and the arrest.

Dragone was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for pre-arraignment detention and processing. The District Attorney’s Office recommended bail at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond.

Dragone arraigned in the Livingston County Central Arraignment Part at the Livingston County Jail before Geneseo Village Justice Thomas Bushnell.

The Judge decided against the bail recommendation, releasing Dragone on her own recognizance. More cases are being investigated with additional charges.

Those who feel they may be a victim of a similar incident regarding Dragone Travel are asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 585-243-7100 (in the U,S,A) and ask to speak with Sheriff’s Investigator Brad Schneider.
