Oak Hill mother, son arrested

OAK HILL — An Oak Hill mother and son who allegedly paid a $140 bill to a local pizza delivery driver with a stolen check were arrested Saturday on forgery charges, according to Fayette County Magistrate Court documents.

According to Oak Hill Police investigator J.G. Hoover, Patricia Ann Treadway, 45,  called in an order to an Oak Hill pizza restaurant on Jan. 26.

When the delivery driver showed up at the given address, Patricia Treadway allegedly handed her a check for $140 and accepted the delivery.

According to police, the owner of the checks — a woman whose name appeared on the top of them — had reported the checks missing.

Patricia Treadway’s son, Nicholas Ryan Treadway, 19, took one of the stolen checks into Chase Bank in Oak Hill, showed his identification, stated his name was Nicholas Treadway and attempted to cash a check from the same account in the amount of $250, according to Hoover.

The teller, Hoover said, personally knew the woman who owned the check and refused to cash it.

Hoover and other officers searched the Treadway home and found torn-up fragments from multiple checks on the same account and a receipt for a check that was uttered at a Jones Avenue convenience store, police said.

Surveillance footage from the store showed Nicholas Treadway at the counter with the forged check, Hoover reported.

Hoover said evidence showed that Patricia Treadway had reasonable knowledge that the checks were forged but passed them as true to the pizza delivery driver.

Patricia Treadway was at Southern Regional Jail on a $5,000 bond, while her son was at the jail in lieu of a $10,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing, officials said Monday.
