Mitchell woman accused of stealing ex’s paycheck
A Mitchell woman is accused of stealing her ex-boyfriend’s paycheck and cashing it.
Danielle DeBuhr, 35, is charged with forgery, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
According to court documents, the victim learned his paycheck from The Daily Republic had been cashed and realized it had been stolen from his mailbox. The victim suspected DeBuhr and an investigation allegedly showed someone had written “pay to the order of Danielle DeBuhr” on it with her signature.
The handwriting for the victim’s signature allegedly looked similar to DeBuhr’s signature.
The Mitchell Police Division acquired security video from County Fair Food Store, where the check was cashed, and the victim positively identified DeBuhr cashing the check at 9:42 a.m. Dec. 13.
