Mid-Missouri woman accused of forgery, theft

A Holts Summit woman is facing eight counts of forgery in connection with stealing at least $25,000 from her former employer.

Latishia Marcum, 48, is also charged with one count of felony stealing.

Court documents show the incidents occurred from February 2011 to August 2013.

However, Jefferson City Police Department said Marcum, since 2008, has been forging and cashing employment checks of a female who had worked with her.

The victim said she had not given Marcum permission to sign her name or cash any checks bearing her name.

The victim has also not worked for Missouri Home Care Associates LLC, which provided the checks.

The victim worked for the company for a short time in 2008 and resigned by informing Marcum, who was her supervisor at the time.

A representative of the company, which is based in St. Peters, said he had been led to believe by Marcum that the victim was a current employee and that Marcum provided a time sheet for the victim saying she had worked.

According to banking information, the victim’s employment checks have been deposited in Marcum’s bank account.
