On October 30th, 2018, the Riverton Police Department dispatched an officer to the Atlantic City Credit Union on North Federal Boulevard for a report that an individual had passed two fraudulent checks.

Two checks were cashed by 35-year-old Andrea Miller on October 25th. RPD was informed that Credit Union staff believed the checks in question had been “whitewashed and reprinted with new names an account information.”

Court documents show that RPD was provided with the checks in which you could clearly see, “the washing and re-printing over the old information.” One check was written for $950 and another for $500, totaling $1,450.

Documents show that Miller was with a male while she cashed the first check inside of the bank. An employee noted to police that the two, “high-fived in the parking lot before they left.” Miller returned to cash another check in the bank drive-through later that day.

After Miller’s vehicle was identified by RPD, she was arrested.

She is charged with two counts of forgery and one count of “possession of forged writings.”

On November 14th the court found sufficient probable cause to transfer the matter to District Court for arraignment at a later date.

If convicted on all charges, she faces up to 25 years of imprisonment and fines of up to $25,000.

All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
