According to the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office they received a report of checks cashed at a Quincy business that had been stolen from a local resident’s mailbox.

Plumas County Deputy Sheriff investigated the complaint.

Through the investigation the deputy found the suspect had passed five checks at several businesses with a total of $499.60.

One of the businesses that passed one of the checks wrote down a license plate on the back of the check.

This information as well as security footage from a separate business assisted the deputy in identifying the suspect Laurrissa Ballow.

The deputy contacted Ballow and she eventually admitted to passing the checks.

Ballow was taken into custody and booked into the Plumas County Jail on charges of forgery and petty theft with priors.
