Mom charged with theft from overseas soldier


CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Police in northeast Ohio say they've arrested a woman charged with stealing her son's state and federal income tax refunds while he was serving with the U.S. Army in Iraq and Afghanistan.           

The Repository in Canton reports police stopped 42-year-old Jennifer Fletcher on Sunday in Brewster after determining the vehicle she was driving had been reported stolen. The newspaper reports Fletcher is suspected of withdrawing $7,500 from her son's account in 2010 and 2011 and forging his signature to cash checks in his name.           

Court records show she was arrested on charges of theft, identify fraud and forgery.           

Police say a man who was living with Fletcher is charged with complicity to those alleged crimes.           

Fletcher was taken to jail, and records listed no attorney for her.
