Apr. 25—Anthony J. Kilker

SHENANDOAH — A Frackville woman charged with writing bad checks at a Shenandoah business between Oct. 8 and 26 had charges against her held for court during a preliminary hearing Thursday.

Theresa R. Verderosa, 46, of 429 W. Pine St., was arrested by Shenandoah police Patrolman Leo Luciani Jr. and charged with two misdemeanor counts each of theft by deception, forgery and bad checks.

Magisterial District Judge Anthony J. Kilker determined the commonwealth presented enough evidence to substantiate the charges and ordered all six offenses held for Schuylkill County Court, where Verderosa can plead guilty or enter a not guilty plea and request a trial.

Luciani charged Verderosa with passing several counterfeit checks and received payment at the One Stop store, 33 N. Main St. The checks passed by the woman totaled $1,175, Luciani said.
