A Taneytown woman is charged with forgery and theft for allegedly depositing forged checks at New Windsor State Bank.
Suzanna Marie Woodie, 45, of the 4000 block of Kump Station Road, is charged with two counts of forgery, one count of using a bad check, one count of attempting to use a bad check, one count of theft scheme and two counts of theft, according to electronic court files.
Woodie was released from the Carroll County Detention Center on Thursday on $5,000 unsecured bond.
A Taneytown police officer was contacted by New Windsor State Bank in April regarding a check for $8,600 that was deposited at the bank but was not paid by the bank it was drawn from because it was altered, according to charging documents.
The check was deposited into Woodie's account March 17, and on March 26 and 28 Woodie withdrew most of the $8,600 in two transactions, according to the documents.
The bank contacted Woodie and told her the check was altered and she needed to reimburse the bank, according to the documents. Woodie told the bank vice president she would call him back but never did.
The officer contacted Woodie and made an appointment to meet with her at the Police Department on May 1, but she did not show up and did not answer phone calls.
On May 6, Woodie deposited a check for $12,887.54 at a branch of New Windsor State Bank, and she was told there would be a seven-day hold on the check, according to the documents. The bank contacted the company that had ostensibly issued the check and learned they did not know about it and had not authorized that it be written.
The officer applied for charges against Woodie on Tuesday and she was arrested Thursday, according to electronic court files.
