The man grabbed the owner of the cup by his shirt and this led to a fight. The man then walked to his apartment and came out with a large kitchen knife and began chasing the cup owner around.

P.C. 32.21   Third Degree Felony
Case Number: 1510070099
Corpus Christi Police were called to a bank after a female tried to cash a stolen check.

Officers arrived at the Coastal Community and Teachers Credit Union, located at 1909 Trojan Drive, and were told that a female came into the bank and attempted to cash a check worth $515.

When the teller recognized the name on the bank account, she remembered that he had reported several checks had been stolen from his home on Oso Parkway after a residential burglary on October 5.

Officers arrived at the bank in time to arrest the female, Laurie Ann Gonzalez (03/06/1976). She was arrested for forgery, a felony offense. Officers also determined that the female had an outstanding warrant for her arrested for failure to appear on an original charge of dangerous drugs. That warrant had a bond amount of $5,000.

As officers were investigating this crime, they were told by the victim, who had his checks stolen, that a man had cashed one of his stolen checks at the Coastal Community Teacher Credit Union, located at 6810 Saratoga Boulevard, at about 1 PM on October 5.
Officers are investigating this forgery, and hope camera surveillance may have caught the male suspect making this transaction.
