BLOOMINGTON — Two people are accused of possessing a stolen car and using a fake check to buy another vehicle.
Marquies Emery and Kierra Emery, both 22, are charged with possessing or selling a stolen vehicle, a Class 2 felony; and forgery and theft by deception, both Class 3 felonies.
Court documents say the pair met a man in order to buy his car and gave him a fake check. When police later pulled over both cars for speeding, they found the initial car to have been reported stolen from Indiana and Kierra Emery in possession of a glue stick.
Meanwhile, a county deputy had determined the fake check had scissor marks on the edge and was in fact two pieces of paper glued together.
Both were jailed in lieu of $5,035 each.
