ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — An Isle of Wight County woman is under arrest for writing bad checks, and police are asking you to step forward, if you think you were one of her victims.
Police arrested 24-year-old Amanda Leanne Porter-Eley on Friday when she was at Isle of Wight County General District Court for an unrelated matter. Eley was charged with four felony counts of forging and uttering, with additional charges pending.
Since her arrest deputies in Isle of Wight County say they received calls from four other victims of Porter-Eley. One of those crimes occurred in Isle of Wight County and charges are pending. Of the other three crimes, one occurred in Hampton, one in Suffolk and one in Sussex.
The sheriff’s office first started investigating Eley after a man called and reported her giving him several bad checks. At this point in the investigation, deputies believe there are other victims.
If you think you or someone you know was a victim, call the Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office at 757-357-2151.
