Klawock women charged in pull-tab scam

Posted: Tuesday, April 22, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging two Klawock women with mail fraud and conspiracy.

Janine Harmon, 36, and Delores Peratrovich, 53, were managers of pull-tab operations until September 2001, said the U.S. Attorney's Office in Anchorage.

According to the indictment, the women exchanged inside information concerning the games played in the Klawock Liquor Store and the Klawock Cooperative Association.

Prosecutors said the shared information gave each an unfair advantage when playing at the other's place of employment.

Peratrovich won more than $66,000, while Harmon won nearly $28,000, prosecutors said.
