On Friday, January 25th, 2019, the Sonora Police Department arrested 55-year-old Lori K. Zimmanck of Sonora following an investigation into a report of fictitious check activity.
On Thursday, January 17th, the Customer Service Manager of Bank of Stockton reported that a female entered the bank and attempted to cash a personal check from a Bank of America account for an amount in excess of $3,000. The female identified herself to bank employees as Lori Zimmanck. When the bank manager attempted to verify funds associated with the account, it was learned that Zimmanck was not associated with that account. Ultimately, Zimmanck left the bank, leaving the fictitious check behind.
