ST. CHARLES – A St. Charles woman has been charged with forgery after altering pay stubs to qualify for charity, according to St. Charles Police Department reports.
Elizabeth Quiroz, 33, of the 34W700 block of South James Drive, is accused of using computers at the St. Charles Public Library, 1 S. Sixth Ave., St. Charles, to alter her coworker's pay stubs to reflect her name, address and last four digits of her Social Security number, police said.
Quiroz reportedly told police she had financial problems and wanted to give her five children a good Christmas but was denied financial aid or charity last year because she made too much money.
She was using the North Aurora woman's pay stubs because the woman made less than she did, police said.
Quiroz was charged Nov. 27 with two felony counts of forgery. She is expected in court for a status hearing at 9 a.m. Dec. 6.
She was not able to use the fake documents before her arrest, police said.
