A Village of Sabal Chase woman was arrested on a charge of fraud after allegedly cashing a fraudulent check from the City of Leesburg.

Veronica Look, 38, was arrested Thursday after cashing the $355.64 check at the Kars Mart service station in Eustis, according to an arrest report from the Eustis Police Department.

A police officer contacted the City of Leesburg Finance Department which verified that the check was fraudulent.
