Rexburg Woman Charged With Forgery

Karina Karla Martinez, 36, of Rexburg, was arrested on a charge of forgery and other charges pending, Rexburg police said Thursday.

The department says Martinez passed fraudulent checks under other people?s identities. Police say their cases date back to 2007 when Martinez opened up checking accounts under false names and passed fraudulent checks throughout the area.
