A Peterborough woman is facing charges including fraud over $5,000 after cheques were reported stolen from a vehicle and deposited last month.
Peterborough Police Service says sometime between 10 p.m. on Jan. 26 and the morning of Jan. 27, the suspect broke into a vehicle parked outside a Gordon Avenue residence and they allegedly stole items, including cheques.
Police say cheques totalling more than $15,000 were allegedly deposited into an account and the money withdrawn.
Through the investigation, a suspect was identified and was located at a residence earlier this month and arrested.
Shannon Michelle Mingo, 44, is charged with fraud over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and failure to comply with a probation order.
She was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court in Peterborough on Feb. 26, police said.
