Jeannette man accused of forging, cashing checks

Friday, Dec. 20, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

A 22-year-old Jeannette man is accused of forging and cashing $25,100 worth of checks from a Jeannette medical laboratory.

Trevor Petrillo was charged Friday by Jeannette police with forgery, receiving stolen property and theft for allegedly forging and cashing 46 business checks from Medtoxdx, a clinical medical laboratory operating at 310 Clay Ave., between March 10, 2010 and Dec. 25, 2012.

Petrillo's mother, Deidra, is part-owner of the company, according to police.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, the incident was originally reported to police in July, but the three owners of the business had hoped to resolve it without filing charges.

However, two co-owners, Farukhm Naqvi and Mark Reilly, said the matter was not resolved and recently requested the complaints be filed, the affidavit said.

Deidra Petrillo claimed “the situation had been straightened out ...” and did not want charges filed, police said.

Trevor Petrillo was released on signature bond pending a preliminary hearing before DeMarchis Jan. 2.
