A Brooklyn woman who cashed two fraudulent checks, each for more than $9,000, was arrested on grand larceny charges Monday when she tried to cash another one at a Hempstead credit union, Nassau County police said.

Alicia S. Carter, 33, of Linden Boulevard, cashed the first two fake checks in October at Bethpage Federal Credit Union in Elmont.

On Monday, when she tried to cash another fraudulent check for more than $9,000 at a Bethpage branch in Hempstead, bank officials recognized it as fake and contacted Hempstead Village police, according to a news release.

She was arrested without incident and is charged with two counts of third-degree grand larceny, three counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and third-degree attempted grand larceny.

Carter is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
