Cassandra Lubash, 31, was charged with forgery Thursday for allegedly signing her name and cashing an insurance reimbursement check that belonged to a 70-year-old North Platte woman.

Police spokesman Rodney Brown said Lubash was hired as the elderly woman’s caregiver, and without the woman's permission or knowledge, cashed an insurance reimbursement check and stole the money.

The 70-year-old woman reported the missing check to police.

Lubash was found and charged with second-degree forgery, a felony. She was processed at the Lincoln County Jail and released.


Another North Platte woman, 26-year-old Toni L. Allen, was arrested Sunday on an outstanding warrant. When she was booked, jail staff found what appeared to be a small amount of methamphetamine and the prescription drug Clonazepam on her.

Allen was charged with two counts of drug possession, both felonies, as well as failure to appear on the outstanding warrant.

Police did not say what the outstanding warrant was, but Allen was charged on July 3 with possession of amphetamine and theft. She served five days in jail before coming up with the required 10 percent of a $10,000 bond.

Allen was previously charged Dec. 4 with child abuse and was jailed for several months, according to sheriff's records.
