SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - A Ripon man is facing 20 counts of forgery and issuing worthless checks in Sheboygan County after stealing his roommate’s checkbook while she was hospitalized in Ripon. Authorities said 40 year old Larry Lapan admitted he had argued with his 44 year old girlfriend and went on a cocaine binge in Milwaukee and Sheboygan last June. Lapan was charged yesterday in Sheboygan County Court following an investigation which has been ongoing since the girlfriend complained to Ripon police. Lapan allegedly wrote checks on her account and two others totaling nearly $9,000. Some of those checks, written on the account of a business that was closed, were as high as $2500.
