New Britain Woman Charged in Check Fraud Scheme

An arrest warrant said Lisa Vidtor forged three checks from a local business last year before a bank detected the fraudulent transactions.

A New Britain woman is facing charges after an ongoing scheme to cash forged business transactions, according to a report from the Cheshire Police Department.

Officers took Lisa Vidtor, of 42 Putnam St. in New Britain, into custody late last week on charges of third-degree forgery and fourth-degree larceny. She was released on a promise to appear and is due in Meriden Superior Court for arraignment on Jan. 31.

The charges stem from a complaint made by the Webster Bank branch in Cheshire back in November, according to a report from the Cheshire Police Department.

According to the police reports, bank officials reported that Vidtor, 44, had entered the bank on Nov. 23 and cashed a check written to her from a local business. The business that the check had come from was not named.

"During the investigation, it was learned that the same bank had two fraudulent checks from the same business that were cashed earlier in the month," the police reort said.

Vidtor turned herself in after officers obtained a warrant for her arrest, police said.
