DETROIT LAKES — Jennifer Nicole Sayers, 22, of Fargo, has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony check forgery

According to court records, on Oct. 26, 2022, a camera at Bell Bank in Detroit Lakes showed that Sayers was the driver of a white van, who presented a stolen and fraudulently signed $735 check to a teller at the bank drive-through.

The check was reported stolen from ABT Management LLP, doing business as ABT Property Management. The $735 check was written out to Abdikami Mohamed with "vehicle" on the memo line. Mohamed had an active Bell Bank account at the time, and he told an officer that his personal items, including his wallet, were stolen from his vehicle, which he had reported.

On Feb. 16, a summons was issued for Sayers to appear in court on March 16.
