An Independence, Kansas woman is in custody after being arrested on a $25,000 warrant for allegedly forging a stolen check.  36-year old Diona Marie Burns is charged with obtaining cash or merchandise by bogus check and false pretenses.  Back in late April, the authorities met with a man who's house was burglarized in Caney, Kansas and had several checks stolen.  According to a court affidavit, the victim received his bank statement and discovered one of the stolen checks had been written to Wal-Mart in Bartlesville for $1,685.62.  Reportedly, a surveillance video from Wal-Mart identified the suspect and another woman delivered a forged and stolen check in exchange for $1,685.62 worth of items.  Burns' next court date is June 13th.
