A 28 year old Smithville woman is expected to be in court next week on charges of forgery and theft after obtaining a loan through fraudulent means at the Cash Express here.
Smithville Police Chief Randy Caplinger said Hilda Marsh is charged with three counts of forgery and one count of theft of property.
According to Detective Matt Holmes, Marsh entered the Cash Express of Smithville recently, on two occasions, presented letters purported to be from the Social Security Administration stating that she and her husband were disabled. Marsh allegedly used the letters as proof that she was receiving disability income as a means of qualifying for a loan. On her first visit, she received a loan of $250. However on her second visit, employees of Cash Express became suspicious and contacted Social Security who confirmed that Marsh's letter was a fraud.
