A South Fayette County teenager is in hot water after printing out bogus checks and depositing them into a joint account with a family member.
Stori M. Coffman, 17, was charged with two counts of computer fraud and two counts of printing fictitious checks, according to Fayette County jail records.

The deposit was made using a mobile deposit feature, Babb added.
In other cases, there have been two recent automobile incidents and a reported burglary in Fayetteville.
The two inbound cars were held on July 7 at Discount Gas and Tobacco on North Glynn Street.
Police met with the complainant, who said an unknown subject broke into his truck and another truck, according to Fayetteville Police Department spokeswoman Ann Marie Burdett.
Burdett said the complainant told police he was inside the convenience store and returned to his truck and noticed his rear window and the rear window of a truck parked next to him. his vehicle had exploded. The vehicle owner reported that a backpack containing an iWatch, iPhone, BT headphones and a gold necklace was missing from the back seat.
The Complainant testified that he told the owner of the other truck that his rear window had been smashed. The owner of the other truck told police that no items were missing from his vehicle.
In another case, Fayetteville police were dispatched July 7 to Global Pre-Owned on South Glynn Street on a burglary call.
Police arrived and watched through the front window as items in the office appeared to have been disturbed. Officers searched the building to ensure no one was on the premises. No one was found in the building, Burdett said.
The business owner was contacted and arrived at the scene shortly afterwards, advising officers that no items were missing.
Burdett said police viewed CCTV footage of the incident, which showed an alleged suspect within the business. The video showed what appeared to be a light-skinned black man wearing gloves, a black shirt, black pants, and his hair pulled up in two ponytails on the left and right sides of his head.
The case was turned over to the Fayetteville Criminal Investigation Division for further investigation.
