Westtown-East Goshen police are looking for information on the occupants of this car on Thursday.

From crashing into a PennDot truck to passing bad checks, area residents have been accused of sundry infractions during the past few days.

North Coventry Township Police said Jesus Moran Jr. of Reading drove his 1997 Hyandai Elantra into the rear of a PennDot vehicle on U.S. 422 just before midnight on Monday. The investigation revealed that Moran was having a coughing fit and did not see that the right lane was closed ahead of him, police said. He was transported to Reading Memorial Hospital for chest and head injuries, police said.

State police said Lady Linnette Gonzalez, 33, of West Chester, was suffering from alcohol impairment when she was observed speeding and swerving in her green 2000 Ford Explorer on Rt. 30 in Caln Township on July 31 at 3:14 a.m. Police said yesterday that she was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child since her 13-year-old son was in the front seat.

On Thursday, Westtown-East Goshen Regional police said a 19-year-old Philadelphia woman was taken into custody after her second attempt to cash an alleged counterfeit check for $1,246.61. Police said Tamia Ann Dennis first went to the West Chester branch of TD Bank, where she was refused, made a scene, and left the bank.

TD personnel issued an email alert to other branches, prompting employees at the TD branch in Westtown to call 911 when Dennis showed up there. Police said she agreed to take $400 from two males who used her personal information to print the checks. Police are seeking the occupants of a small red sedan that left the parking lot as a police vehicle approached the bank. The investigation is continuing, and more arrests are expected.
