Traffic Stop Leads To Check Fraud Charges


A woman faces charges after sheriff's deputies say a traffic stop cracked the case of a check scam.

Deputies pulled over someone over on Tuesday and say they found a stole payroll check in the car.

Investigators had been working on a complaint about the same type of payroll check cashed at a local bank or credit union.

The traffic stop led deputies to a home on the 1100 block of West Michigan Avenue in Jackson. They got a search warrant and then found hundreds of blank payroll checks there from a company that is no longer in business.

They also learned that similar checks had been cashed at several banks across the area.

A 22-year-old Jackson woman now faces charges of "uttering and publishing" - a legal term that often relates to check fraud.
