In two Independence County forgery cases, one woman had an arrest warrant issued, while the other, a man, is in jail and charged with two forgery counts.
Independence Circuit Court records say the warrant was issued for Alicia M. Green, 32, who is wanted and charged in connection with the theft of a check from an Independence County couple and the forgery of that check at the Exxon Express Store in Pleasant Plains.
Court information shows that investigating deputies used in-store video to tie Green to the forgery. Green’s bond has been set at $15,000.
In the other case, a Chicago, Ill. man has been charged with two forgery counts — passing two fake $100 bills at two separate Batesville businesses. The two instances occurred last Saturday in Batesville with the suspect, Kenyon Orlando Dobbins, 44, being taken into custody in Sharp County three days later when an officer was alerted that Dobbins was attempting to purchase items at a Highland business.
When Dobbins vehicle was searched, officers discovered 18 counterfeit $100 bills along with other contraband.
Dobbins is now in the Independence County Jail and charged with two felony counts of forgery. His bond was set at $25,000.
