A Burlington woman faces numerous charges after she allegedly cashed three fraudulent checks at an Iowa City Hy-Vee.

According to a complaint by Iowa City police, Larry'sha Lawrence, 20, presented three fraudulent checks at Hy-Vee, 1720 Waterfront Drive, and allegedly had them cashed.

The complaint said the clerks at Hy-Vee checked Lawrence's driver's license and wrote the license number on the checks, which were cashed Aug. 3 and 4. The license number reportedly belongs to Lawrence. Lawrence was also allegedly recorded on Hy-Vee video surveillance cashing the three checks, which totaled $2,580.87.

The complaint said Lawrence was arrested in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, on July 8 on similar charges. In Iowa City, she is charged with three counts of forgery, second-degree theft, and identity theft, all of which are Class-D felonies.
