Police say that a Chicago woman tried purchasing an over $30,000 vehicle from a car dealership in Highland Park with a fake cashier’s check.

Sade Crockett, 36, of Chicago, was charged with forgery by delivery of a document, a Class 3 felony.

The Highland Park Police Department responded Friday evening to McGrath Kia, 250 Skokie Valley Road in Highland Park.

Officers received a call for a fraud report at the dealership, according to a police report.

Officers learned that Crockett had attempted to purchase a vehicle with a cashier’s check.

The report said employees of the dealership contacted the bank to verify the check’s authenticity.

The bank informed staff that the check, which was made out for $30,710, was fraudulent.

Officers arrested Crockett and the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the forgery charge.

Crockett was transported to the Lake County Jail and attended a bond hearing on Saturday.

Prosecutors said Crockett told officers that she received the check from her uncle, who she claimed was buying the car for her.

The fraudulent check was counterfeit or bleached, prosecutors added.

Lake County Judge Christopher Lombardo allowed Crockett to be released on a personal recognizance bond.

Crockett is scheduled to appear in court again on March 29.
