TROY – A Troy woman convicted of forgery for signing names of customers of Check into Cash on loan paperwork without their knowledge was sentenced Monday, April 17, to two years of community control and restitution of $1,401.
Pennie Roberds, 46, originally was charged with four counts of forgery and one of theft involving four checks for loans totaling $1,401 in November and December. Troy police said business video showed Roberds allegedly processing loan documents while no customer was in the store. She later pleaded guilty to one count of felony forgery in Miami County Common Pleas Court.
Judge Jeannine Pratt sentenced Roberds to two years of community control after ruling she qualified for mandatory community control. The judge ordered Roberds to obtain a full-time job, undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, perform 30 hours of community service and pay the restitution.

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — A major gateway will close at Wright-Patterson today for maintenance, impacting the travel of thousands of commuters.
Gate 19B off National Road will be closed from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., according to base spokesman Daryl Mayer.
More than 5,700 inbound drivers travel through the entrance and nearly 6,300 drive off base through the gate every work day.
Crews will work on “routine maintenance” at the gateway, Mayer said.
“Since that (gate) is open 24/7 normally, they never have a chance to work on it,” he said.
Motorists may use Gates 1B off Springfield Street and Gate 22B off Interstate 675 as alternatives, according to Wright-Patterson.
Gate 19B had a major makeover last year with $1.3 million in upgrades that added overhead canopies, more guard booths and a barrier system, Wright-Patterson has said.
The base closed Gate 26A off Ohio 235 because of security concerns this month. The gate, which had more than 5,000 vehicles a day, remains closed.
