A Rosemount woman faces a felony charge after she allegedly took several blank checks from her ex-boyfriend and wrote them out in varying amounts to herself and her mother.
Florence Charlene Wright, 24, is charged with felony check forgery in Dakota County, which holds a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, a man reported to in December 2010 that some of his checks were stolen and used without his permission. He apparently had learned between March and July that year of five checks written from his business account that he didn't write himself.
He told police he expected his ex-girlfriend, Wright, as four of the checks were written to her and one was written to her mother, the complaint says.
Police arrested Wright, who allegedly admitted to taking, writing out and signing the checks with her ex-boyfriend's name without permission, the complaint says.
The total amount of all the checks was $2,020.
Wright was convicted of petty misdemeanor theft in 2007, and gross misdemeanor receiving stolen property in 2010 in Minnesota, court records show.
