Pottstown Woman Arrested on Bad Checks Warrant

SANATOGA PA – A Nov. 20 (2019; Wednesday) preliminary hearing is scheduled for a 22-year-old Pottstown woman who was arrested on a warrant obtained by the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department for allegedly passing bad checks during 2017, the department’s CrimeWatch website reported.

Olivia Shantel Butler is charged with four counts, according to court records, and was arrested Oct. 26 by Westtown-East Goshen Regional police officers under circumstances that were not disclosed in the web report. She faced preliminary arraignment the same day in the Pottstown courtroom of Magisterial District Justice Edward C. Kropp Sr., and was released on $5,000 unsecured bail, the records add.

Lower Pottsgrove reported its officers were called Oct. 24, 2017, to the Tri-County Credit Union in response to a complaint that Butler, who at the time was a credit union member, “had an outstanding balance from her checking account due to several worthless check transactions.”

Police said she “deposited several checks into her credit union account from several other banks. The checks were no good since they were from accounts that did not exist.”
