Couple accused of stealing, cashing sister’s check

ARDMORE — A Limestone County couple face a forgery charge after they allegedly cashed a check stolen from a family member.

Courtney Dane Rodgers, 22, of 28120 Mooresville Road, Elkmont, and Allen Wayne Burden, 25, of 27425 Sweet Springs Road, Ardmore, were arrested Wednesday on charges of second-degree possession of a forged instrument, records show.

Rodgers is accused of stealing a check from her sister and, along with Burden, cashing it for $80 at Uncle Bud’s Mini Mart on Alabama 127, north of Athens. The store’s surveillance video captured an image of two suspects, believed to be Rogers and Burden.

The two remained in the Limestone County Jail Thursday afternoon, with bail set at $2,500 each.
