FAIRFIELD, Conn. A Bridgeport woman was arrested after she tried to cash two fake checks totaling nearly $2,000 at a local supermarket, police said.

Jessica Rios, 31, of St. Stephens Road, was charged with fifth-degree larceny and second-degree forgery around 6:30 p.m. Friday, police said.

The charges stem from two incidents in the fall of 2014.

In October, a service desk clerk at the Stop & Shop on Villa Avenue chased a check for $954 made out to Rios, police said. When she returned in November with a similar check, the clerk at the service desk became suspicious and questioned Rios, who ran out of the store, leaving the check and an ID behind, police said.

She was arrested on a warrant at Stratford Police Department on Friday.

She was released on a promise to appear in court on Dec. 22.
