Pasco deputies: Woman stole $2,595 in checks from nonprofit, dad

TRILBY — Sharon Green Adams, 46, is accused of stealing and cashing checks from the Greater Trilby Community Association, a nonprofit providing services to the eastern Pasco community. Her father, Charles Herb Green, is the president of the association.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says Adams stole community association checks from her father, as well as several of her parents' personal checks. A report states that Adams forged her father's signature and cashed the checks at a Citgo gas station at 20949 U.S. 98 in Trilby, obtaining $2,595 total.

The bank suspected the checks were fraudulent and returned the checks, so the Citgo station is at a loss, not Green or the association, the report states. Authorities say the thefts happened between March and May 10.

Adams, of 20950 Beaver Road in Trilby, was arrested Wednesday and charged with organized fraud. She remained Thursday at the Pasco jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
