MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Police in Medford, Oregon, arrested two Los Angeles women accused of using forged travelers checks.

The Mail Tribune newspaper reports (https://is.gd/UvkiBK ) 56-year-old Kimberly Campbell and 50-year-old Deborah Townsend were booked into the Jackson County Jail. Each is charged with theft, identity theft, forgery and racketeering. Townsend also is being held on an attempt-to-elude charge.

Police say the women visited the Rogue Valley Mall Tuesday night and returned merchandise they allegedly purchased in California with forged travelers checks to get cash. They also allegedly used the forged checks to buy new merchandise.

Police say the number of stores they hit caught the attention of mall security.
