A Le Roy woman is accused of stealing jewelry, credit cards and checks from a friend and then forging the checks before cashing them at a local bank.
Olivia J. Paganin, 20, of Summit Street, allegedly took the items between June 3 and July 5.
She is charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument, two counts of grand larceny and one count of petit larceny.
Paganin is already in the custody of New York State Department of Corrections on an unrelated matter (not disclosed) and returned to the correctional facility following her arraignment yesterday.
