Albany suspects caught on coast

February 23, 2007

By Jim Wallace

Albany -- Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigators are interviewing four people arrested in McIntosh County who may be involved in a counterfeit check scam that ripped off an Albany business for more than seven thousand dollars.

Investigators say WALB News 10 helped alert bank officials and law enforcement about the Albany crimes.

Wednesday we told you about seven people passing seven fake tax advance refund checks at the Lighthouse Liquors the first week in February.

The checks and the Georgia Driver's Licenses they showed were counterfeit, but their pictures were real.

After we aired that story, McIntosh Sheriff's Officials contacted Dougherty County Sheriff's Investigators about four people they had in custody. During a routine traffic stop in McIntosh County, Georgia State Troopers found fake ID's and counterfeit checks in their car.

Twenty-five-year old Kristy Shaw of Atlanta, 18 year old Charleston Samuels of Decatur, 22 year old Antonio Hines of Austell, and 23 year old Steve Hines of Austell are being held in the McIntosh County Jail.
