A Florida woman arrested in connection with alleged check fraud at Citizens First Bank.
Georgianna Lang Antich, 39, of Ocklawaha, was arrested on three counts of fraud and one count of theft after submitting to an interview at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office substation at Pinellas Plaza.
Antich went March 4 to the Citizens First Bank branch at Spanish Plaines Plaza and gave the teller a business check displaying the name, “Bar B Q Management,” which had been made payable to Antich in the amount of $267.86. She kept $50 cash and “deposited the rest of the money into her newly-created Citizens First Bank personal checking account. This check was later determined by the bank to be fraudulent,” according to an arrest report.
The following day, Antich went to the Citizens First Bank branch at Southern Trace Plaza and gave the teller a business check from “Bar B Q Management” made payable to her in the amount of $305.85. She took the entire amount in cash.
Antich returned to the bank at Spanish Plaines Plaza on March 8 and handed the teller a check from “Swampdog LLC” in the amount of $323.42. She received the full amount in cash.
The checks were determined to be fraudulent.
Antich was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $8,000 bond.
