Trappe Woman Arrested On Multiple Theft Charges

Posted: Updated:

TRAPPE, Md. - A Trappe woman is arrested on multiple theft related charges.

The investigation began back in November when police were contacted by the Talbot County District Court Commissioner to pick up some charging documents on a person from Trappe in reference to issuing bad checks and theft from a food vendor in Easton.   Upon examining the charging documents, authorities determined that the person charged in the documents was not the correct person.

With help from the Talbot County State's Attorney's Office and the Talbot Bank, police concluded that 55-year-old Debra Cussen, owner of the Hidden Gem Restaurant in Trappe, had forged the signature of another person on that person's checking account, and then issued the bad checks to four different vendors who were supplying her restaurant.
     
Cussen is being charged with 14 counts of Forgery - Private Documents, 14 counts of Possession of Forged Private Documents, 14 counts of Issuing False Documents, 12 counts of Theft - less than $1,000.00, 5 counts of Theft - $1,000.00 to under $10,000.00, 2 counts of Theft - $10,000.00 to under $100,000.00, 1 count of Theft Scheme - less than $1,000.00, and 6 counts of Theft Scheme - $1,000.00 to under $10,000.00.
