A local woman has been charged with forgery after she allegedly stole and forged a family member’s personal check.
Kathleen Rozell, 27, of Whitehall was arrested and charged and with second degree forgery, a class D felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor.
Police have accused Rozell of entering a family member’s home and stealing a personal check which she subsequently forged and tried to use at a local business.
The business did not accept the check for payment and contacted one of her relatives to notify them of the situation.
Rozell was arrested following an investigation by the Whitehall Police Department.
The arrest comes only a few weeks after Rozell was arrested for trying to use a stolen credit card at a different business in Whitehall.
Rozell was arraigned in Whitehall Village Court and sent to Washington County Jail for lack of $2,500 bail or $5,000 bond.
