Norwood Police Arrest Two Suspects for Forging a Check
Two suspects were arrested for attempting to cash a false check in the amount of $5,265.
On Mar. 11, Norwood Police received a call from Norwood Bank stating that a black female was attempting to cash a forged check in the amount of $5,265. The check was issued by a Norwood auto body business.
"The employee from the auto body shop stated that check was not good and that he would respond to the Bank to confirm this," Norwood police said in a statement.
But after waiting for some time, the woman became impatient and left the bank.
As the woman was leaving, the employee from the auto shop was entering the bank and was able to get the description of the woman's vehicle.
Officer Greg Gamel was informed that the woman left in a grey or silver van on Central Street and he broadcasted the information over the police radio.
"Officer Will Fundora was working a private detail and was monitoring this radio call. He observed and stopped this vehicle at Central and Nahatan Street and was immediately assisted by other patrol and detective units," Norwood police said.
The suspect was identified as 23-year-old Rhonda L. Gamble-Tate of Mattapan. The driver of the van, her accomplice, was identified as 24-year-old Hardy R. Wallace of Dorchester.
The two were arrested by Norwood Police for uttering a false check, forgery of a check and attempt to commit a crime. Hardy was also charged with Operating a Vehicle Without Being Licensed.
The suspects were arraigned in Dedham District Court on Mar. 12.
