BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Three men are in jail in a forgery ring in southwest Georgia.

Police say the men stole checks from mailboxes, made purchases at local stores, and then returned what they bought for cash refunds.

28-year-old Michael Jones of Valdosta and 27-year-old Kendrick Moore of Snellville are in the Decatur County jail tonight charged with 1st degree forgery. 28-year-old Josh Burton is in the Tallahassee jail tonight also charged with forgery.

Police say for months the three men stole personal checks being mailed to pay bills from mailboxes, washed the checks, and left only the signature on the check.

They would then purchase merchandise from Wal-mart stores, then return the items for a cash refund.

Investigators say they netted thousands of dollars.
