HARRINGTON, Del.- Harrington police have arrested a Milford woman accused of cashing stolen checks. A second suspect in the case is still at large.

Police said that on Wednesday, officers were contacted by the victim who reported that she had two checks stolen and an unknown suspect cashed the checks at the First National Bank of Wyoming in Harrington.

Police said an investigation into the thefts revealed that an unknown female and unknown male entered the bank and cashed two checks. According to police, the investigation also determined that the suspects had forged the victim's name on the checks.

Investigators said bank surveillance video of the suspects helped them identify 22-year-old Sara G. Kimmons of Milford as the female who cashed the checks. Officers contacted Kimmons, who turned herself in to the Harrington Police Department. She was charged with two counts of theft under $1,500, second-degree conspiracy and second-degree forgery. She was released on $6,000 unsecured bond.

Police identified the male suspect as 23-year-old Steven Schaffer, whose last known address was Lynch Road in Milford. The Harrington Police Department currently has warrants on file for him. Anyone with information on Schaffer's whereabouts is asked to contact the department at (302) 398-4493 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
