BURLINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A Burlington, Ky. couple was arrested for forgery Thursday after police say they cashed a check belonging to another woman.

William Cassidy, 45, and Aimee Jo Cassidy, 37, are both charged with complicity to commit forgery.

Police say a woman reported on Dec. 31, 2009 that her paycheck had been mailed to her former address, which is currently occupied by the Cassidys, and that it had been cashed. Detectives ran down the check and determined someone forged the victim's signature and had William Cassidy as a co-endorser.

The couple was lodged in the Boone County Detention Center in lieu of a $5,000 bond.
