Woman accused of pilfering checks from boyfriend's mom
Belfast — A Frankfort woman was summoned on one charge of theft and six counts of forgery, police say, after she made out and then cashed checks she stole from her boyfriend's mother.
Belfast Patrolman Wendell Ward said 25-year-old Nicole Hubbard stole the checks from the victim, with whom Hubbard was residing at the time of the alleged theft. According to records at the Belfast Police Department, Hubbard took the checks and cashed them from Wednesday, Nov. 14, through Thursday, Nov. 22.
Ward said Hubbard made the checks out to herself, forged the victim's signature and cashed them at convenience stores around the city.
Ward said Monday, Dec. 3, the total amount drawn from the victim's account was $300, but that more checks may clear. Ward did not expect the final amount to be in excess of $1,000, and added that Hubbard has since repaid the victim $300.
Ward said that will be helpful to the victim, because most of the checks Hubbard is accused of forging cleared before she discovered the money missing from her account.
Both charges are first offenses for Hubbard, Ward said.
