LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Officials say Marianne Young racked up almost $13,000 by changing the dollar amount on checks. Now, the Fayette County Sheriff's Office is trying to track her down.
Young is wanted for criminal possession of a forged instrument. Officials say the victim in this case would give Young checks from time to time. The victim would only fill out the dollar amount on the check and then sign the check. Police believe Young was then altering the checks. For example, police say one check was made payable in the amount of $600, she added a "one" to make it $1600.
We went with the Fayette County Sheriff's Office to Marianne Young's last known address. The landlord says she hasn't been there in a month. If you see Young, call the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.
