MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach Police arrested a 24-year-old woman on Monday accused of cashing a check that did not belong to her.

Samantha Diane Wiggins is charged with forgery less than $10,000, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

A police report from the MBPD states Wiggins cashed a fraudulent check at the Aquarius Motel on September 16.

The check was written in the amount of $1,790, but Wiggins was only given $1590, the extra being withheld for her future rent, the police report states.

The police report shows that the check issuer was found to be a law firm in Florida and that their account had been compromised months ago.

Wiggins is currently being held at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
