A Norwalk woman is in custody and facing forgery charges after several recent incidents at a north-side Norwalk business.

Jennifer Lang, 39, of 5 Westwind Drive, was employed at Rogers Rides, which is located on U.S. 250 across from the former Cook's store, according to Huron County Sheriff's Detective Josh Querin.

Querin said Detective John Harris conducted the investigation.

"Jennifer Lang, an employee there at Rogers Rides, was getting checks for the company and if the check was for $300, for example, she was putting a '1' in front of the '3' and then cashing the checks," Querin said.

"She admitted to Detective Harris she did this on four occasions," he said. "She was altering the checks and then cashing them for more money."

She was arrested and booked into the Huron County Jail.

The investigation took about a week, Querin said.

The charge is a fifth-degree felony.

"Detective Harris did an excellent job," Querin said.
