Two arrested for forgery, fraud, stolen checks

ST. GEORGE – Police arrested a man and woman for attempting to cash stolen checks at State Bank of Southern Utah Tuesday.

St. George Police responded to a report that a woman was allegedly attempting to cash stolen checks at the State Bank of Southern Utah, Tuesday evening. Amanda Fredrick, a 25-year-old LaVerkin woman, was trying to use a fake ID to cash checks that were reported stolen in a residential burglary earlier this month, according to a report by St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain.

Fredrick was arrested along with 23-year-old Kelcy Roberts of Marysvale, Utah, who was with Fredrick at the time. During the course of their investigation, police discovered that Roberts was wanted in connection with another alleged forgery incident earlier this year in Salt Lake County. Both suspects were charged with multiple counts of fraud, theft, forgery, and presenting false identification. They are currently being held at Purgatory Correctional Facility.

Ed. Note: Persons charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
