Petoskey Woman Accused of Felony, Writing Checks to Closed Account

A Petoskey woman is accused of writing several checks to businesses throughout Otsego County—knowing the bank account had already been closed.

Michelle Burtovoy is charged with a felony called “no account check.”

In July, state police say an auto business in Gaylord called them about a problem with a check.

The owner said a woman paid for $500 in repairs at the shop with a business check.

That check was returned because the account had been closed.

Burtovoy will be back in early January.
