Kimberly B. Guitron, 31, New London, was charged Oct. 4 with five counts of forgery uttering.
On April 6, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Dan Lewinski spoke with a Neenah woman who had just been booked on five counts of worthless check writing.
The woman said the bounced checks were from a joint account with her ex-husband and the account had been closed at the time the checks were written.
The five checks had been written out to the Northport Convenience Store in Mukwa and totaled $950.
Lewinski reviewed videotape from a security camera at the store. A woman on the tape who was purportedly writing one of the forged checks was identified as Guitron.
When she was questioned by Detective Sgt. John Mocadlo, Guitron reportedly said she cashed the five checks but claimed the ex-husband had given them to her.
Guitron faces up to six years in prison if convicted of forgery.
