Hellertown police say a Quakertown area woman gave bad checks to two borough businesses between Aug. 16 and Sept. 13, 2012.
Mary Schaller, 52, of 127 Hickon Road, Springfield Township is charged with theft by deception, receiving stolen property and bad checks.
According to court records, Schaller gave a check for $117 to Yeager's Pharmacy and another for $118 to Saylor's & Co., despite having insufficient funds in her bank account.

Schaller was arraigned Sept. 25 before on duty District Judge Gay Elwell in Easton, and released on her own recognizance.
A hearing for Schaller is scheduled in October, police said.
