Thomasville--  Investigators say in Thomas county alone $11,000 in bad checks were passed.

Eric Dye and Dante Jenkins were reportedly making counterfeit checks using the routing number for Lowndes county DFCS.

Arrests have been made on nine other individuals involved in the forgery.  When questioned, these individuals admitted to using their own I.D.'s to cash the checks, but fingered Jenkins and Dye as the ringleaders.

Investigator Tim Watkins of the Thomas County Sheriff's Office said "they also advised us that those two people were the ones transporting them around to cash the checks. They received $100 from each one of the checks they cashed and the other two individuals got the remainder."

So far investigators say they've found cases of checks being cashed in Thomas and Lowndes, in Ben Hill and in Waycross. They continue to investigate just how far this counterfeit ring spreads.
