LYNDON –– A 34-year-old woman from Burke has been accused of uttering a forged instrument, grand larceny, and identity theft, according to the Lyndonville Police Department.
Amber Labrecque was charged with the crimes after an investigation into a complaint filed by Lyndon resident Frank Trull, 81, on August 3.
Trull reported that he had cashed three checks for Labrecque, drawn on the account of the company 148 Eastern Ave LLC and supposedly signed by Joshua Prue, 43, of St. Johnsbury, and Tina Leblond, 64, of Newport.
The checks, which totaled about $1,454, were later found to be forged.
Labrecque was located on October 6, 2023, at a disturbance on Depot Street in Burke where Lyndonville Police Department officers were assisting Vermont State Police troopers. She was then cited for the alleged crimes.
Labrecque is scheduled to be arraigned in Caledonia Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. on December 18, 2023.
