Blotter: Woman arrested in connection with forgery

Comments () A Text Size

A woman was arrested in connection with several forgery cases after she allegedly attempted to cash a forged check at a bank in the 1100 block of West Main Street in Lewisville recently, according to a police report.

Officers responding to a forgery in progress call last week approached the woman at a teller’s window and confirmed that the check was forged, police reports state.

The woman was arrested and charged with forgery of a financial instrument.

The woman was linked to 14 other cases of forged checks at the same location, according to the report.

Lewisville police suspect the woman is allegedly responsible for passing $50,000 worth of forged checks in March alone. She had more than $11,000 in cash in her possession at the time of her arrest, the report stated.

The additional cases are under investigation.
