Rock Hill police looking for man who cashed $1,850 bad check

Police: Counterfeit check cashed

Rock Hill police detectives are investigating a York County man accused of cashing a $1,850 counterfeit check at a local tobacco and beverage store last week.

The Rock Hill store owner told police that he cashed the out-of-state check after making a copy of the man’s driver’s license. Afterward, the bank called the owner and said the check was bad, according to a police report.

When the store owner called the company that issued the check, representatives told him the check was a counterfeit, the report states. Detectives also said the license that the man used is invalid.

Rock Hill officers determined from the man’s invalid license he lived in Sharon. A second suspect has not yet been identified.

No charges have been filed yet and police have not released the suspect’s name.
