A cleaning service employee altered and cashed $1,105 worth of checks stolen from three different Glen Rock homes, said police who suspect similar thefts in other towns.

Detective Lucas Doney identified and busted 39-year-old Monica Gonzalez of Hopatcong after the cleaning service owner told police that she “suspected one of her employees of stealing checks from clients’ homes,” Police Chief Dean Ackermann said Monday.

Gonzalez – who didn’t maintain a consistent address -- took 10 checks in all from the three homes, the chief said.

It’s believed she also stole from homes in other towns, he said.

Homeowners who received her services were urged to check their bank accounts and report any irregularities to their local police department.

Accompanied by her lawyer, Gonzalez surrendered to police and was released pending a Feb. 22 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
