A woman who was previously convicted of bank fraud in federal court faces new charges.
Nicole Marie Rogers, of Minot, has been charged in South Central District Court with felony counts of deceptive writings and possession of stolen property. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 3.
Earlier this month, a detective with the McLean County Sheriff's Department found stolen checks in Rogers' vehicle during a probation search, according to a police affidavit.
In her truck, there were multiple items of mail and checks written to or belonging to several different people.
The detective contacted a woman who had two checks in Rogers' vehicle, and the woman stated the checks were stolen from her mailbox while she was on vacation in December. The woman also told the detective she didn't know Rogers.
Another woman contacted by the detective said she did not know Rogers, nor did she write a $600 check to Rogers for "snow removal."
In 2013, Rogers pleaded guilty to a federal charge of bank fraud, according to a news release from the North Dakota U.S. Attorney's Office. In October 2012, Rogers presented checks with forged signatures to a bank in Belcourt.
Rogers was sentenced to two months in custody, followed by three years of supervised release.
