LOGAN–A Nibley woman was charged with forgery and theft in 1st District Court Tuesday.

Debra Lund, 40, faces one count of forgery, a third-degree felony, and two counts of theft, one count a third-degree felony and the other a class A misdemeanor, according to information filed by Tony C. Baird, Deputy Cache County Attorney.

At her first appearance Tuesday, Lund requested a preliminary hearing. It was scheduled for Dec. 16.

Lund was charged based on evidence given by Deputy J. Olsen of the Cache County Sheriff’s Office. According to Olsen, on Aug. 19 Lund altered a writing of another without his authority, took property worth more than $1,000 and less than $5,000, and took unauthorized control over another person’s property worth between $300 and $1,000.

After Lund completed an affidavit of indigence, Judge Thomas Willmore ruled that she is indigent and appointed David M. Perry, public defender, to represent her. According to the affidavit, Lund receives $400 per month as state assistance, owes $2,500 more than her car is worth on her Honda Accord, owes $1,000 for nursing school tuition, and supports her four children, who range from 7 to 16 years old. She makes $9.81 per hour working on call as a certified nurse’s assistant, but said the hours are unreliable.
