A local woman was charged with allegedly cashing a check without the intention of paying the victim back.

Tina Stroud, 42, 960 Spring Ridge Drive, was charged April 29 with second-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Stroud, acting as a bail-bond agent, cashed a $2,000 returned bail-bond check belonging to the victim on Feb. 14. Stroud was allegedly fired by the bail-bond agency more than two months prior to cashing the check but did not inform the victim or the clerk of court. As of April 29, Stroud has not paid the victim, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, Stroud admitted to spending the victim's money and did not have the funds to pay the victim.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony, punishable of up to five years in jail and a maximum fine of $7,500.
