Forged check used to pay rent; one charged

Burnsville Police are alleging that a Hastings woman, Breanna Marie Reed, 23, stole a book of checks from a Burnsville woman and then presented one of the checks for payment for rent. Reed has been charged with felony check forgery from the check-writing last fall. She apparently was trying to rent a place in Farmington and signed the woman’s name on the check before presenting it to the landlord. He later learned the check for $2,400 had been forged. Reed was subsequently evicted from the residence.
