26-year-old Anthonette Allen was caught stealing a check from her estranged husband, David Allen, at her mother’s house on June 6th. David reported that he had a Veterans Affairs compensation check sent to a previous address where he no longer lived due to him and Anthonette splitting up. The address now belongs to his mother-in-law. David called Anthonette and asked her to send him the check, but she refused and cashed it herself. Officers spoke with Anthonette over the phone, and she admitted that she had cashed the check. Anthonette stated that she had a power of attorney but could not prove law enforcement with any evidence of it. Anthonette was taken into custody for theft on June 24th.
