A Trenton woman has been arrested on multiple bad check charges that were filed in Grundy County more than four years ago.
27-year-old Krystal Martin of Trenton is charged with felony stealing by deceit as well as with seven felony counts of checks written on an alleged non-existent bank account. Bond is 25 hundred dollars cash.
Ms. Martin is due in the Associate Division of Grundy County circuit court June 28th.
A warrant for her arrest was issued in May of 2012. Charges were filed then by former prosecuting attorney Carol Wetherell. Ms. Martin was taken into custody yesterday and is held at the Grundy County Detention Center pending posting of bond and the court appearance next week.
Authorities report two Trenton businesses were victims of the defendants’ purported attempts to defraud using an alleged non-existent bank account.
The stealing charge accuses Krystal Martin of obtaining numerous products from the retail store that in March 2012 was known as Pamida. Two checks were issued amounting to over 667 dollars. The warrant said the checks were returned to Pamida by the Wells Fargo Bank due to the checking account being closed.
Ms. Martin is accused of seven individual counts of issuing bad checks to the TNT Convenience Store March 21st to the 25th of 2012. Collectively the checks added up to over 700 dollars. Each count is listed as a felony.
