ELKO – A Spring Creek woman was arrested on felony charges after an Elko man discovered a $200 check written on his account.
The check was written out to Jayli Acquistapace, with a memo stating it was for house-sitting services. The account’s owner told police he never met anyone by that name and had never hired anyone to house-sit. He said his checkbook must have been stolen.

According to Elko County Jail records, Acquistapace has also been arrested in the past five months on charges of obtaining or possessing a credit or debit card without the owner’s consent; felony possession of a controlled substance; and petit larceny.
