Date Incident: 2 December 2015
Subject: Forgery Arrest
On 2 December 2015, at approx. 2:25 pm, an officer was dispatched to Bank of America, located at 180 S. Washington Street, regarding a possible forgery which had just occurred. Bank staff reported a female had attempted to cash an altered and possibly stolen cashier’s check.
The officer located the suspect in a nearby business. The suspect first gave a false name and date of birth to the officer. She claimed she had received the check online and was attempting to cash it.
The bank retained the check and the identification the suspect had used when she attempted to cash the check. The identification was in the same false name she had given the officer. The identification had been altered to show the suspect’s alias she was using. The check was confirmed to be stolen out of Antioch, and it had been altered as well. The suspect was finally identified as Chanmony Tith, 35 of Modesto.
Tith was taken into custody without incident. She was booked at the Tuolumne County Jail for felony burglary, felony using another person’s identification, felony falsely impersonating another person, misdemeanor false identification to a police officer, and misdemeanor possession of stolen property.
