IRASBURG — A 75-year-old man from Irasburg had two checks stolen from him turn up in the Enosburg area on Wednesday.
Richard Green, of Irasburg, had a woman by the name of Cynthia Huntington living with him briefly. Huntington, 33, is alleged to have stolen two checks from Green when she left.
On Wednesday, April 9, the Vermont State Police were notified that the checks had been used in Enosburg. One of the checks was written in the amount of $245, and the other for $200. With the help of a friend, Huntington is said to have cashed one of the checks at Enosburg Community Bank. The other check turned up at the Hannaford Supermarket, where it was used to buy groceries.
The Vermont State Police caught up with Huntington and questioned her in the matter. According to the police, Huntington admitted to stealing the checks from Green out of his checkbook when she left his home.
She was subsequently charged with false pretenses and ordered to appear in Vermont District Court to answer to that charge.
