Anniston police were investigating this morning a forged check for more than $1,000 cashed at a local credit union Tuesday afternoon.
Anniston police Capt. Allen George said a suspect cashed a check for $1,675 from a physician’s office in Gadsden at the Alabama Teachers Credit Union on U.S. 431. The check was cashed Tuesday between at around 3 p.m., according to a police report.
George said the doctor’s office later called the credit union and told them the check was forged. The doctor’s office told police that a check was never written to the suspect, George said, and that the suspect does not work at the office.
George said police were reviewing the credit union’s surveillance today.
A suspect could be charged with felony second-degree possession of a forged instrument.
