Forged Check Investigation
An investigation leads to the identification of a suspect believed to have cashed a forged check on the city of Heflin’s general fund account. Heflin City Clerk Shane Smith said that while he was settling the city’s general fund account in September, he noticed two checks with the same number. He then discovered that a forged check for $1,366 had been cashed in August in Pell City. Smith said he saw a copy of the check and he knew it hadn’t been written by the city. Heflin Police Officers have forwarded a warrant to the law enforcement agency where the suspect lives.
