LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette woman faces three felony charges after authorities said she tried to set up a checking account with a stolen check.
According to court documents, Kelvonna Allen, 18, tried to open a checking account at the Industrial Federal Credit Union on Meijer Drive in October.
The branch security officer recognized the $900 check she was trying to open the account with as one that had been reported stolen.
At first, Allen claimed the check belonged to her aunt.
But she later admitted an acquaintance had given her the check with instructions on what to say to the bank staff.
