POLK COUNTY, Fla. - The Polk County Sheriff's Office is searching for a woman who they said wrote a fake letter from their office to her boyfriend's employer to excuse him from work while he was in jail.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said employees at Reddy Ice contacted authorities after reading the letter written under the PCSO's letterhead.

"If you're going to dummy up a letter from the Sheriff's Office, I highly recommend that you spell correctly (and) that you use a real deputy, so that you're not embarrassed when we come out and arrest you," Judd said in a video posted to the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page. "Because this has got to be some of the worst spelling and the worst sentence structure that I have ever seen."

Martisha Wilson, 46, has a Polk County warrant out for her arrest on a charge of criminal use of personal identification. She also has an Orange County warrant for her arrest on a theft charge.

She is believed to be in the Orlando area.

Wilson's boyfriend, Marco Sullivan, 32, remains in jail on charges of possession of cocaine, fleeing or attempting to elude police, resisting an officer, driving with a suspended license and using another person's identification.

Anyone with information about Wilson's whereabouts is asked to call the PCSO at 863-298-6200.

Those who wish to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward can call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 800-226-TIPS.
