Tonia Dolison, 46, Steals Blank Check From Man, 62, On First Date To Pay $4,000 In Rent

While most men end up paying on the first date, this guy probably didn’t think he would end up paying his date’s $4,000 outstanding rent.

Tonia Dolison, 46, from New Jersey, stole a blank check from her date, a 62-year-old man she met online, to pay rent, authorities say.

Dolison was arrested Tuesday and charged with third and forth-degree grand larceny, second-degree forgery and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, Staten Island Live reports.

Police say Dolison met her suitor on a dating website and the two decided to meet at a restaurant for their first date on Nov. 15.

The date went so well that after dinner, Dolison agreed to go back to the man’s home for drinks, movies and to stay the night.

While at the home, Dolison proceeded to steal a blank check from a checkbook sitting on a table, she admitted to detectives.

After the date, she wrote herself a $4,000 for rent.

“I noticed he had a blank check on the table so I just grab the first check from the book,” she reportedly told authorities, according to the Daily Mail.

“I then made the check out to my landlord and gave it to him. I did I because I was about to be locked out of the apartment. I signed and made out the check,” Dolison said.

Police say the crime occurred approximately at 2 a.m. in the man’s New Springville home.
