A White County woman , wanted by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department for allegedly passing forged checks in the names of a Temperance Hall couple, is now in custody.
40 year old Lisa Kylene Frasier and her husband, 41 year old Larry Frasier of Luna Road, Sparta were arrested Friday at a motel in Gallatin.
Gallatin Police made the arrests.
Ms. Frasier has been charged by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department with aggravated burglary, and theft of property and will be charged with forgery. Her bond is currently set at $15,000.
No local charges have been filed so far against Larry Frasier.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says someone recently burglarized the residence of Kenneth and Nadene Carter at Temperance Hall and stole two boxes personal checks from Regions Bank and the Bank of Putnam County in the names of the Carters.
Sheriff Ray says Frasier is also a suspect in a similar case in Wilson County.
These checks have been passed in DeKalb, Sumner, Wilson, White, Jackson, Putnam, Smith, Coffee and Warren Counties.
Sheriff Ray says Frasier used a fake drivers license to pass the checks, that has her own picture, and the actual license number of Nadene Carter.
During the course of the investigation, Sheriff Ray says the local department suspected that the Frasiers might be in the Gallatin area since some of the stolen checks were being passed there.
The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office made contact with Gallatin Police and the joint investigation between the two departments led to the arrests of the Frasiers.
Gallatin Police spotted the Frasier's Pontiac parked at a motel in the area on Friday. Police converged and made the arrests without incident.
The Frasier's, currently in custody in Gallatin, will soon be returned to DeKalb County.
