A woman sought in connection with a December string of fraudulent check card transactions turned herself in on Monday night.



Lynette Maria Riddick, 31, of Suffolk, is suspected in at least 29 incidents in which the check card belonging to an elderly woman was used without the victim’s permission, Suffolk spokeswoman Diana Klink stated in a press release.

The card was first used at Dollar Deals on North Main Street on Dec. 16, and then again in a series of transactions around Suffolk during the next five days, according to Klink.
