Court Date Set For Woman Indicted For Forgery

A November 16th arraignment in Putnam County Criminal Court has been set for a Baxter woman, accused of stealing a check from a co-worker and forging the victim's name on it.  Authorities say they used surveillance video from the bank where the check was passed as part of the evidence they presented to the grand jury.  That led to the indictment of 33-year-old Diane Christine Cronk of Henley Road, who authorities say had also been working at Plateau Mental Health Center at the time that the check was stolen back in May.  They claim she stole the check on May 2nd and cashed it on May 3rd in the amount of $425.  She is free on bond pending resolution of the case.
