FORGERY CHARGES FILED AGAINST RURAL MOUNTAIN HOME WOMAN


Carrie A. Toth

    

     Sheriff’s Investigators have arrested 38 year old CARRIE A. TOTH of rural Mountain Home on five felony forgery counts following an investigation into the fraudulent use of another person’s credit and debit card information for personal gain. 

     On August 13, 2016, the Sheriff’s Office took a complaint of forgery from a Baxter County resident.  This person reported that CARRIE A. TOTH had obtained the number of a debit card that is tied to the victim’s account and had used the card numbers to make purchases that she had no standing or permission to make.  The complainant/victim had also found and discovered a defaced credit card of hers in TOTH’s possession.  TOTH had been a caregiver living in a residence with family members of the victim’s.

     During the course of the investigation, which involved the examination of bank records, it was determined that CARRIE A. TOTH had used the debit and credit card information she had stolen to make at least five fraudulent purchases since May 17, 2016.  These totaled $1,265.35. 

     Investigators obtained a bench warrant for the arrest of CARRIE A. TOTH.  She was arrested and incarcerated in the Detention Center Thursday afternoon, August 18th on five counts of Forgery in the Second Degree, which are Class C Felonies.  She was released after posting $25,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in the Baxter County Circuit Court to answer on August 25th.

   The investigation into this matter is continuing.

Baxter County Sheriff
