Two women who allegedly forged checks belonging to a business were arrested Tuesday evening in Kalihi.
The women, 32 and 31, are accused of using company payroll checks to purchase items and receive cash back. It is not clear if the women, both of no local address, are employees of the business.
The checks were later discovered to be counterfeit. The owners of the business filed police reports and officers arrested the women at Kingsgate Plaza at North King Street and Dillingham Boulevard. The suspects were being held pending multiple charges of second-degree forgery and second-degree theft. The younger woman was also being held on a contempt charge.
