A Southlake title company owner arrested earlier this month in Illinois on a Tarrant County theft charge was returned to Fort Worth late Tuesday.

Nancy J. Carroll, 45, of Keller, was booked into the Tarrant County Jail at 11:07 p.m. Tuesday with bail set at $1 million.

Carroll is accused of bilking her customers at Millennium Title in Southlake out of millions of dollars.

An initial hearing in Fort Worth for Carroll is pending.

The Keller lawyer and title company owner is charged with theft over $300,000.

Carroll was arrested March 3 in Lake Forest, Ill., a Chicago suburb, after leaving her Keller home when a Texas court ordered her company into receivership, according to officials with the Tarrant County district attorney’s office.

Lake Forest jail records identified her as Nancy Jackson Spinks of Lake Forest, Ill.

She is accused of swindling millions from customers of her company, Millennium Title, 771 E. Southlake Blvd. The offense date is listed as Oct. 29, but an exact amount is not listed, according to Tarrant County court records.

As of Jan. 25, the company has been under control of a court-appointed receiver tasked with liquidating the company, according to court documents filed Feb. 5.

In a separate lawsuit filed against Carroll on Jan. 29, a plaintiff is seeking almost $797,000 in damages. The lawsuit alleges that Carroll maintained an escrow account for real estate closing purposes but took proceeds for her personal use.
