A local woman has been charged with forging a check.

Rachelle Johnson, 27, 1100 Arthur No. H3, was charged Feb. 10 with forgery.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, on Dec. 2, 2011, Johnson contracted a business from Cedar Rapids to clean the carpets in her residence.

To pay for the service, Johnson allegedly wrote a $66 check on the victim's account and forged the signature. The victim is Johnson's former roommate.

According to the complaint, the victim declared the signature on the check was not hers, did not authorize the signing, and identified the handwiritng as Johnson's. A witness later identified Johnson in a photo lineup.

Forgery is considered a Class-D felony.
