Three men charged in a check forgery scheme
In Colquitt County, multiple arrests were made this week in a check forgery scheme.
The Moultrie Observer reports John Covin and Mario Newcomb were charged with several counts of misdemeanor forgery and felony identity theft charges.
Kenneth Washington was charged with two counts of misdemeanor forgery.
Officials say the checks contained the bank routing number and account number of another victim, so the checks would contain valid information.
The investigation is on going and more arrests and additional charges are expected.
