KIMT-TV 3 – A woman facing criminal charges in two North Iowa counties pleads guilty in one of them.

Emily Elizabeth Buttshaw, 35 of Manly, entered a guilty plea Monday to one count of forgery in Cerro Gordo County and pleaded not guilty to possession of methamphetamine in Worth County.

She’s accused of stealing a check from a Mason City business owner and making it out to herself for $500. Police say Buttshaw tried to cash the check on January 18. Then on January 25, Buttshaw was arrested after she was reported behaving suspiciously at the Holliday Inn in Northwood. Authorities say Buttshaw was apparently left in the parking lot with her belongings tossed all over and was found in possession of two glass pipes and two clear plastic bags with a crystal substance in them.

Buttshaw is now scheduled to be sentenced for the Mason City forgery on May 14 while her Worth County drug trial is due to start on June 27.
