A woman with multiple credit card fraud and worthless check convictions faces new charges.
So far this year, Waupaca County prosecutors have filed six felony cases involving forgery, worthless checks and felony bail jumping against Lorrenda A. Fritz, 49, Waupaca.
Her most recent charges are associated with three bad checks totaling $143.56 that were written to both Waupaca Kwik Trip stores on May 5 and May 12.
Waupaca Police officer Sam Van Dinter questioned Fritz about the checks.
“When I asked Lorrenda if she knew she did not have money in her account at the time the checks were written, Lorrenda stated she had money in her account but spent it before the check cleared,” Van Dinter reported.
On May 6, Fritz allegedly wrote a $37.59 check to the Econo Foods in Clintonville that bounced.
According to the criminal complaint, the bad check cost the store a total of $61.70 when bank charges and certified mail costs were considered.
Fritz was released from custody on signature bonds on Dec. 12, 2017; Feb. 9, 2018; and March 5, 2018.
Conditions of her bonds included that she not possess or cash any checks other than her Social Security check.
In 2017, Fritz was allegedly involved in a scheme where she used her computer to print fake checks for a non-existent business called “Custom Candles.”
She then made the checks out to friends who cashed them, kept part of the cash and dropped off Fritz’s portion in either cash or meth, the 2017 criminal complaint says.
Fritz’z criminal record dates back to 2013.
