A Gulfport woman has been taken into custody on a charge alleging she forged someone’s check in the amount of $4,200.

Elizabeth Jean Page, 25, was arrested Friday from a complaint filed Aug. 18, Sheriff’s Lt. Coley Judy said. The check was made out to cash, Judy said.

Sheriff’s investigators had obtained a warrant for her arrest while investigating a forgery complaint. They found her Friday, he said.

A K9 deputy went to her home in the 14300 block of H Page Road in Gulfport, and she was arrested without incident, Judy said.

Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner set Page’s bond at $10,000 pending an initial court appearance.

Page was held at the Harrison County jail.
