LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman has been arrested by the West Buechel Police Department after being accused of writing stolen checks out to herself and trying to cash in.

She went on to make several withdrawals from her falsely inflated account, police say, causing a loss to Republic Bank of $4,281.
Davis, who lived in Highland Heights, Ky., at the time of the alleged thefts, according to the arrest warrant, was taken into custody on Monday at 8 p.m.
She is charged with 20 counts of theft by deception and 20 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, according to police.
