Callaway County deputies knew where to look for Stephanie Turner, 26, of Fulton during their recent investigation of stolen checks.
She was in Callaway County Jail held on a $9,000 bond for a previous arrest.
On Feb. 14, Callaway County deputies arrested Turner for hindering prosecution after officers contended she attempted to mislead deputies about the whereabouts of her then boyfriend, Jody Wood. There was an active arrest warrant for Wood at that time.
After she was taken to jail, a search of Turner revealed two personal checks that were from a bank in Texas. The jail staff reported the suspicious checks to deputies.
An investigation revealed the checks were stolen from a residence in Arizona and were forged.
