PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh woman was charged Feb. 28 with possession of a forged instrument.
On Nov. 27, 2013, Evelyn M. Thouin’s father went to the State Police barracks in Plattsburgh and told troopers she had stolen a check from him and cashed it for $500, State Police said.
The 28-year-old had signed her name on the check, police said.
Police obtained an arrest warrant and were unable to locate her for a few months, eventually taking her into custody at 60 Oak St. in the City of Plattsburgh, charging her with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor, police said.
She was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court and released under the conditions of the pre-trial release program under recommendation from the Clinton County District Attorney’s Office, police said.
