Forged Traveler’s Checks Passed At Target Stores

Forged traveler’s checks were passed at one Pueblo-area business, and now detectives are asking other businesses to check if they were given any of the fake documents.

Pueblo police say that the Target at 3300 Dillon Drive received eight of the forged Master Card traveler’s checks. The suspect, Laquianeshia Rogers, allegedly passed eight of the forged $100 checks at that store. She walked out with $167.79 in merchandise and the remainder in cash.

All of the fake checks bore a routing number indicating it was issued by the Union Bank of California.

Rogers was arrested on January 9 in Grand Junction after passing the same forged traveler’s checks at a Target there. She is charged with eight counts of forgery and theft.

Target stores believe she also passed the forgeries at stores in New Mexico, Arizona and California.

Any businesses that believe they received the forged Master Card Traveler’s Checks are asked to please contact Detective Donnie Lambert with the Pueblo Police Department at 719-553-2533.

    i drove up to pueblo this morning and see about 12 police total on the high way there was no need to have that many cops to arrest this poor man! he wasnt doing anything wrong to anyone! what happened to his dogs they you said they took the female in to the hospital but where did they put his dog they are his companions why would they take them from him. they were herassing him about going through the town of pueblo when he was just trying to pass through its not like he was asking them for money he just wanted to keep moving and now there are complaining cause he was just sitting in one spot. thats not right at least he wasnt sitting there stilling from people or asking people for money! here in la junta there is a man saying that he is homeless and everyone has seen him in a nice car with his girlfriend! that poor man dont deserve to be in jail for trying to live his life on his own! at least he trying to make it on his own and not asking anyone else for the help like other people do

      Where to begin Veronica? First off, as 'Mommy101" points out, you're commenting on the wrong story. Secondly, this man was not just "passing thorugh"; he has remained in the area for approx six months, which is well beyond a reasonable amount of time. I'm all for free-speech and the right to use public lands, but this is extremely excessive. And finally, your lack of syntax, diction, and spelling and punctuation skills only undermine your comments, and puts them in an even more unflattering light.

      Veronica! Congratulations, you win! This has got to be the most incoherent post ever! Not to mention, the misspelling, lack of grammar and posted in the wrong place too! Amazing.
