Stripper charged with forgery for cashing customer's blank check

An exotic dancer is facing forgery and larceny charges for allegedly cashing a check from a customer, despite the fact that police said it appears the check was given to her.

Trumbull Police said the customer, who was not named, came to headquarters to file a report that he lost a blank check and it had been cashed for $400.

Police were able to track the check cashing back to Paula Galindo-Suaza, 26, of Fairfield. When she came to talk to police, she had the complainant’s drivers license. Police said Galindo-Suaza is an exotic dancer at a business in Bridgeport. She told police the customer came to the club, had a service that he allegedly could not pay for, so he gave her the check and license as collateral.

Police charged Galindo-Suaza Monday with second-degree forgery and sixth-degree larceny for cashing the check for $400.

She is scheduled to appear in court April 29.
