Bogus payroll checks passed

December 11, 2003

Edison-- A warning is being issued to South Georgia businesses. Someone is cashing bogus payroll checks. The bad checks have been passed at five businesses in Edison, Leary, Bainbridge, and possibly Colquitt.

The checks are presented as payroll from Cold Air Distributors Warehouse of Florida Inc., and Five Star Credit Union in Cedar Springs, Georgia. But they're not. They're fake.

They are made payable to Samuel Taylor, and they're being passed by a black male, who's about six feet tall and weighs about 220 pounds.

Edison Police Chief Ronald Evans says if you see one of these checks, you should call police.
