HOLIDAY — A woman was arrested Wednesday after authorities said she forged nearly $18,000 in checks on her grandparents' account.
Natalie Whitson-McEwan, 30, and her boyfriend, Michael Souchereau, are accused of forging signatures on 54 checks, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. The checks, written between October and April, were cashed throughout Pasco County.
When confronted by detectives, Whitson-McEwan denied forging the signatures or withdrawing money without permission, the report said.
Whitson-McEwan, of Holiday, was charged with scheme to defraud and grand theft from a victim over 65 years of age. She remained Thursday at the Land O'Lakes jail on $15,000 bail.
Souchereau remains at large.
