GULFPORT, Miss.---Aiken Public Safety officers tell News 12 Patsy A. Hope has been arrested in Gulfport, Misssissippi.
She's wanted on check fraud charges in Aiken County, S.C. and Richmond County, Ga.
Officers say the schemes involved her stealing checks from mailboxes, changing the information on them, and then cashing or trying to cash them at various financial institutions.
Aiken DPS Lieutenant David Turno says the plan now is to bring Hope back to South Carolina, if she waives extradition.
