Her arrest came after the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office received several calls about a woman going door to door in the Lone Oak area asking for money.

Deputies said on one occasion Mills was invited into a home and given money.

She stole a check from that home according to officials.

She then forged the check and attempted to cash it at a bank.
