Jamie B. Jensen, 25, Waupaca, was charged with two counts of forgery uttering.
On Oct. 17, a woman went to the Waupaca police station after receiving a letter regarding a worthless check written for $35 to the Waupaca Mobil Travel Center.
The woman told police she did not write the check because she had closed the account. She said she had moved and may have left the checks at her former residence.
According to the criminal complaint, the victim said a landlord had called her and asked if she knew Jamie Jensen because Jensen had used one of her checks to pay $300 in rent.
The landlord told police Jensen had lived in the lower level of a cottage on Grandview Road. Jensen had dropped off a check after moving out of the cottage. When the landlord tried to deposit the check, he learned the account had been closed.
When questioned by Waupaca Police Officer Paul Benzschawel, Jensen reportedly said she found the checks and decided to use them because she needed the money for food and gas so she could get to her methadone appointments.
