New York State Police arrested a woman they say cashed a forged check.

Police say they received a tip from a local business owner showing bank records that one of his business checks was filled out and cashed without his prior knowledge.

Lori McNamara, 51, of Wilton, a former employee, is accused of forging the check and depositing the money into her account.

She was charged with possession of a forged instrument and fourth-degree grand larceny.

McNamara is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
