Wellington woman admits forgery

by Amy Alonzo

A Wellington woman admitted to unlawful taking of a prescription and uttering a forged instrument Monday in Douglas County District Court.

Shelly A. Kilfian, 42, of Wellington, was arrested in May for attempting to obtain oxycodone and alprazolam using a deceased man’s prescription.

Kilfian in October was arrested for cashing a forged check worth $400 at Topaz Lodge.

She admitted guilt in the two crimes in exchange for dismissal of two additional charges of uttering forged instruments and charges of possession of a controlled substance, theft and possession of a hypodermic device.

Her sentencing is set for May 1.

■ The arraignment of a Reno man involved in a vehicle accident while driving a stolen car was continued while he undergoes a competency evaluation.

Keith Turner, 26, was arrested Feb. 7 after an accident on Highway 395 at Riverview Drive. Turner ran into a nearby 7-11 before deputies detained him. Turner said the vehicle belonged to a friend, then admitted he stole the vehicle from an employee at Meadowood Mall.

His arraignment was continued to April 17.

■ A Carson City man accused of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic battery admitted to violating his probation.

Jose Alcocer, 37, admitted to testing positive for methamphetamine and alcohol, both violations of his probation.

Alcocer in November denied that in August he threatened his girlfriend with knives, struck her and pushed her son.

His bail for the most recent charges was set at $1,200.

■ A California man will spend five years on probation and pay $9,600 in restitution for stabbing another man in the stomach.

Tony K. Guthrie, 30, of Plumas Lake, Calif., was arrested in January of 2015 at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe after he stabbed another man in the stomach.

A five-year prison sentence is suspended while he makes payments.

■ One of two men who defrauded an elderly person will pay nearly $1,700 in restitution, even though the victim is now dead.

Sony A. Sterio, 42, of Hawaii, was arrested in August of 2015 after he and another man detailed an elderly man’s car after the elderly man told them he didn’t want their services. The pair entered the elderly man’s house and demanded money, then followed him to the bank.

The victim has since passed away, said prosecutor Brian Filter.

Sterio will make minimum $100 payments per month.
