Colorado Springs woman charged with fraud

Posted on 02/10/12

A 29-year Colorado Springs woman was recently arrested and charged with a number of white collar crimes in Teller County.

The woman’s bond was set at $3,000 after being accused of forgery, unlawful use and manufacture of a financial transaction device, computer crime, criminal impersonation and false reporting to authorities.

The woman’s arrest came one day prior to a separate arrest on similar charges. Police arrested a 28-year-old man from Divide, Colorado, and charged him with forgery, criminal impersonation, unauthorized use of a financial transaction device and theft. The authorities set his bond at $1,000.

That same day, a 41-year-old Colorado Springs man was brought in on charges of failing to comply on an original driving under the influence charge. That arrest illustrated how strict law enforcement can be on offenders.

In a separate case, a 44-year-old man from Monument, Colorado, was arrested and charged with failure to comply on an original charge of theft of property between $1,000 and $20,000. He was placed in jail and a judge set his bond at $10,000.

Two other Colorado Springs residents were arrested on related charges, though in separate cases: A 58-year-old man was arrested on a warrant that charged him with failing to appear in court on an original charge of DUI, driving without a license, improper lane usage and driving under the influence per se.

In the second case, a 51-year-old man was similarly charged with failing to appear in court for DUI and other charges, including failure to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle. His bond was set at $20,000.
