Thomasville-- Several business in Thomasville have been hit by a group from Jacksonville. Investigators say five suspects passed thousands of dollars in bad checks in Thomasville and Valdosta and possibly other places.

Investigator Tim Watkins with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office says, "Don't accept the checks and get their tag number or call police while they're still there, call law enforcement."

Investigators say the suspects write the checks late at night after bank hours when stores are about to close.
