WOMAN ARRSTED FOR FORGERY AND THEFT AFTER ALTERING CHECKS
Jennifer Ann Meyer
JENNIFER ANN MEYER, 24 years old of Yellville, Arkansas, was arrested Thursday, March 15th, on forgery and theft charges following an investigation into altered checks issued on the checking account of a person MEYER worked as a caretaker for.
On January 30, 2012, the victim gave MEYER a check in the amount of $20.00. This check was presented later this same day at the First National Bank in Lakeview for $120.00. The victim stated the check had been originally issued for $20.00 but had been altered. On February 1, 2012, the victim gave MEYER another check for $10.00. This check was presented the same day at the same bank for $110.00. Again, the victim stated the check had been originally issued for $10.00 but had been altered.
On March 9, 2012, MEYER was interviewed by Investigator Drayton McDaniel. She denied altering the checks in question. However, upon inspection it was clearly evident that both checks had been altered and the amounts changed using a different type of pen.
Based upon the evidence, Investigator McDaniel procured a warrant for the arrest of JENNIFER ANN MEYER, which was served on her on March 15th. MEYER was incarcerated in the Detention Center and later released after posting bond in the amount of $10,000. She will appear in Circuit Court on March 22nd to answer charges of:
Forgery in the Second Degree (2 counts) – Class C Felonies
Theft of Property (2 counts) – Class A Misdemeanors
