Men arrested in connection with discovery of forged paychecks
CHAPIN, SC - Two men have been arrested after one of them tried to cash a forged McDonald's paycheck at a Chapin grocery store last week, according to police.
Chapin Police Chief Tony Crump says Anthony Gilmore was charged with forgery and simple possession of marijuana on July 19. Crump says Gilmore attempted to cash a forged check for $428.36 at the Bi-Lo on Chapin Road.
Gilmore told officers he was employed at the McDonald's on Forest Drive. He said he had just come from Aiken and wanted to cash the check to put gas in his vehicle, Crump said.
At the same time, officers made contact with a burgundy GMC Yukon driven by Stristian L.Cullum. It was determined that the two were together and that Cullum had dropped Gilmore off at the Bi-Lo, the chief said.
After getting permission to search the vehicle, officers discovered a forged check from Precision Tune in the amount of $1,137.24, Crump said.
Officers also located paper used to print checks in the vehicle, according to the chief..
Representatives of McDonald’s and Precision Tune both told officers that Gilmore had never been employed with either company.
Cullum was also arrested. He was charged with open container of liquor and simple possession of marijuana.
Both suspects were taken to Lexington County Detention Center.
