According to the Broome County Sheriff’s Office, a bank teller became suspicious when Rafferty tried to cash the changed check and refused to cash it.

Rafferty then is said to have asked her employer for a new check, claiming the original had been consumed by her rabbit.

The employer became suspicious and contacted the sheriff’s office.

Rafferty has been charged with felony possession of a forged instrument. She was arraigned in Binghamton City Court and released pending further court action.
