CLEARFIELD -- A 25-year-old Layton woman who believed her mom owed her is now looking at felony charges.
Clearfield Assistant Police Chief Mike Stenquist said Penny Shepherd took her mother's checkbook and credit cards and went on a spending spree in February.
"It was mostly small checks she wrote at convenience stores," Stenquist said.
Police arrested Shepherd on Thursday and booked her into Davis County Jail on four counts of illegal use of a credit card and seven counts of forgery of checks.
She is being held without bail.
Riverdale police filed one count of forgery, a third-degree felony, against Shepherd in 2nd District Court in Ogden on Monday.
Stenquist said Shepherd wrote at least 19 checks and used her mother's credit card to buy cigarettes and food, and receive cash at convenience stores in Davis County.
"She felt her mother owed her, so (Shepherd) felt justified in doing what she was doing."
