Woman Accused of Trying to Pass Bad Check

Bank tellers kept a woman occupied until police were able to arrest her for allegedly trying to pass a bad check.

A Newark, N.J. woman was arrested by Middletown police and stands accused of trying to cash a bad check at local bank branches.

Jennifer Andujar, 20, is charged with forgery, false identifictaion to law enforcement and bad checks.

Police report they were summoned to the TD Bank on East Lincoln Highway in the Langhorne section of Middletown Saturday morning for a report of a fraud in progress.

A bank teller kept the 20-year-old engaged in conversation until police arrived and were able to question her, police said.

According to an affidavit, an officer began speaking with the suspect and told her not to give false information. She then identified herself as Catherine Andujar and provided a false date of birth, officials said.

The bank was alerted to Andujar after the same bad check was denied at a TD Bank branch in Levittown, court records show. Police said the suspect acknowledged the check was denied earlier in the day.

The bad check was worth $2,600, according to police.

Andujar was arraigned before Judge Leonard Brown and sent to county jail on 10 percent of $15,000 bail. On Wednesday, her bail was reduced and she was released, according to Bucks County Prison.

cc: do you ever stop complaining???? you comment on every patch article, and all you do is whine!! the girl's out on bail....that does not mean the judge let her go! she'll have her day in court - remember "innocent until proven guilty"? i'm not defending her by all means; i hope she does get jail time. just saying it's not the judge's fault - that's just the way the criminal justice system works.
