Oxford woman charged with forgery

The Oxford Police Department arrested an Oxford woman for allegedly cashing two forged checks for more than $2,000.

On June 28, officers responded to a local check cashing company that reported Christina Diggs, 22, was attempting to cash a fraudulent check; however, officers could not determine at that time if the check was forged. Diggs was allowed to leave the scene. Later, officers learned that Diggs cashed another allegedly fraudulent check at a different location. Both checks were made out for more than $1,000.

A warrant for her arrest was issued on July 8 and she was picked up on July 12 at her residence and charged with uttering forgery. She was taken to the Lafayette County Detention Center where she was booked on a $15,000 bond.
