According to Captain Bill Kennedy, Angie Wynn Strickland, 46, was arrested by Detective Brett Miller Friday. She is charged with forgery in the second degree and theft of property in the first degree, Kennedy said.
He explained that Strickland was accused of forging the signature on a quit-claim deed for three acres of property valued at $18,000, then had the deed recorded in the probate office.
Bond in the case was set at $5,000 by District Judge Jeb Fannin.
Forgery in the second degree is a class C felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison. Theft of property in the first degree is a class B felony, punishable upon conviction by two to 20 years in prison.
