A Roulette woman was arraigned for the second of two forgery cases filed this month against her.

Renee E. Seger, 23, of 42 River St., Roulette, was arraigned Tuesday before District Judge William Todd on charges of forgery, a second-degree felony; theft by unlawful taking, theft by deception and receiving stolen property, first-degree misdemeanors.

The charges come just two weeks after the following charges were filed against her in a separate, but related, case: forgery, a second-degree felony; theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property, second-degree misdemeanors.

The charges stem from events that allegedly occurred in September in Port Allegany and Smethport.

According to the criminal complaint, Seger took checks from her grandmother’s home, then on Sept. 2, she forged her grandmother’s name on a check and cashed it at Shop ’n Save in Port Allegany for $300.

Then, on Sept. 14, Seger cashed another forged check, this time for $200 at Costa’s Supermarket in Smethport, the complaint stated.

When a Port Allegany officer interviewed Seger, she provided a written statement admitting that she stole checks, signed them and cashed them, according to the complaint.

Seger was arraigned on the first of the two forgery cases on Oct. 9, and total bail for the two cases is $10,000.

She is scheduled to appear in Central Court Oct. 31. Also that day, Seger is set to appear in Central court for a third case in which she faces felony and misdemeanor drug charges.

Even before the forgery cases were filed, Seger was committed to McKean County Jail when she was arraigned Oct. 4 for drug charges for an alleged incident Sept. 21 in Bradford City.
