Fraud & Forfeiture Division

The Fraud & Forfeiture Division is responsible for prosecuting the offense of theft by check. This office takes the reports of criminal conduct directly from the victim and then attempts to collect the restitution for loss. If the office is unable to obtain restitution, we prosecute the crime by filing a criminal case. The offense of Theft by Check occurs when an individual presents a check in exchange for goods or services and the check is not honored by the financial institution because of insufficient funds, a closed account, or a stop payment order.

The division currently has one attorney and one administrator. The fraud & forfeiture division handles cases involving counterfeit money or merchandise, as well as forgery of financial documents and other related crimes such as Identity Theft or Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity.
