South Bend Woman Arrested in Forgery Investigation

A South Bend woman was arrested on Friday, April 10 on a warrant after an investigation in forgery was conducted by the Plymouth Police Department.

The investigation began on Sept. 11, 2014 when police received information that a Seven Oaks Veterinary Clinic employee was given false information on financial documents provided by a customer. Plymouth detectives pursued the case and found that the customer included a fictitious name and forged the name on a document.

A warrant was issued for Judy Babinski’s arrest. Detective Leo Mangus from the Plymouth Police Department located Babinski, 52, on Friday and took her into custody. She was charged with felony counts of forgery and identity deception. She has since bonded out of the Marshall County Jail on a $1,505 cash bond.
