Bryant, 25 of Duluth, was not charged with check forgery.
He had a fake check written to him, but he hadn’t cashed it yet so he couldn’t
be charged for that, according to CoffeeCounty investigator
Robert Sprinkle. Bryant was arrested only because he provided the cops with a
false name, a misdemeanor.
On Tuesday, June 16, investigators made two
arrests involving fraudulent payroll checked passed throughout the state, with
more than $35,000 tracked. The Douglas Police Department saw an individual at a
local McDonald’s with a laptop and printer making fraudulent Taco Bell payroll
checks. That man, Inginac Walter Theodore of Athens was arrested on five felony counts for
printing fraudulent checks.
The police said Bryant was in the vehicle and
lied about who he was. Bryant’s ID was found with Theodore.
