Massillon, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) - Jennifer Fletcher, a 42-year-old Ohio woman was arraigned Monday after she allegedly raided her son's bank account and cashed his tax refund checks while he was deployed to Afghanistan.

According to police, Fletcher withdrew approximately $16,000 from her son's bank account between March 2010 and April 2011. Her son was deployed to Afghanistan at the time while serving in the U.S. Army.

Fletcher also allegedly forged her son's name to cash checks including a tax refund check that was deposited in her own account.

Fletcher reportedly gained access to her son's tax and account information when she agreed to file his tax return while he was deployed overseas, police say.

Investigators say Fletcher was arrested Sunday after an officer stopped her because the car she was driving had been reported stolen.

Felony warrants had been issued for Fletcher's arrest in July after her son's wife reported the alleged fraud and forgeries in May of this year. During a police interview, Fletcher reportedly admitted to depositing and using her son's money.

"She used more than just the tax returns," said Lawrence Township Police Chief Mark Brink. "She used some of the money that was put into his account through the military."

Fletcher was booked into jail and charged with two counts of felony theft, one count of identity fraud and one count of forgery. Fletcher is scheduled to make her next court appearance on September 24. Her bond has been set at $150,000.
