In June of 2019 a man came to the Michigan State Police (MSP) Cadillac Post to report someone had cashed a check from his personal checking account in the amount of $300.00. The victim stated he did not write the check.
An investigation followed and the person who cashed the check was interviewed. The person stated he received the check from a friend named Cat. Cat stated she did not have an identification and asked him to cash the check at a local bank for her. Cat was identified as 43-year-old Catrina Voelker of Cadillac.
Voelker was interviewed and claimed the check was for work she had done as a housekeeper. The victim did not know Voelker or the man who cashed the check.
