Reputed East End Con Woman to Face More Charges

An alleged con woman accused of defrauding several East End businesses will face a second indictment in  in Riverside Tuesday.

Nydia Vega, 63, was arrested in Monmouth County New Jersey in August on charges of skipping out on a dinner tab, then extradited to Suffolk, where she has been held at the county jail in Riverside in lieu of $50,000 bail on an indictment for allegedly issuing bad checks to her landlord and at least a half-dozen East End businesses in May 2009.

Vega's first Suffolk grand jury indictment was unveiled on Feb. 5, 2010, but she was not arraigned on the charges until Sept. 22., after her extradition. The earlier charges included three counts of grand larceny and four counts of knowingly issuing a bad check. She pleaded not guilty to all charges.

According to the February grand jury indictment and the Suffolk County district attorney's office, in May of 2009 Vega stole $27,000 worth of furniture for her summer rental in Westhampton from  in Southampton Village, a motorcycle from  in Riverhead and assorted lingerie valued at more than $1,000 from Anezka Jureckova of Sweet Anezka's Lingerie in Westhampton Beach.

Vega has used four social security numbers, two dates of birth and 17 aliases, including Nydia Neubauer, Nydia Vega Reeves, Nydia Rothschild and Lucy George, according to the district attorney's office.

Her last known address is on Madison Avenue in New York City.

Judge Martin Efman will unseal the indictment. The court calendar will be called at 9:30 am.
