Lexington woman charged with four counts of first-degree forgery

A Lexington woman accused of forging four checks totaling more than $25,000 admitted the offense to her employer, according to a police citation filed in Fayette District Court.

Darla M. Holland, 47, was charged Tuesday with four counts of first-degree forgery and was being held in the Fayette County jail.

Holland turned herself in Tuesday "after admitting the forgery to the company," a Lexington police report said. She "also wrote a letter about the incident to her boss" and "went to her employer and admitted the forgery," the report said.

The employer is not identified in the police report. The four checks totaled $25,250, and the violation occurred in May, the citation said.

Holland was to be arraigned Wednesday in Fayette District Court. Her bond was set at $20,000.
