Parking lot check leads to forgery bust

A check of the Wal-Mart parking lot May 23 led to multiple forgery charges against a woman, a police report said.

Officer Mark Sheldon was doing a routine check of the lot at about 10:15 p.m. that Monday night and approached a car with its light on. A consent search of the car led to the discovery of 67 forged Visa debit cards, along with paraphernalia needed to create more, according to the report, which said a false driver's license was also turned up in the search.

Leona Charmaine Savoy, 36, was booked on charges of forgery in connection with the false driver's license, identity theft, counterfeiting of debit cards and modifying the magnetic strips on the cards.
