Thomasville--  A couple of weeks ago we told you Thomas county investigators were searching for a group of men from Jacksonville who passed bad checks for tens of thousands of dollars all over south Georgia.

A clerk at a Thomasville farm equipment store heard about it and encountered some of the men at his store.   Investigator Tim Watkins with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office said, "Saturday the business called, the deputies responded. Encountered 2 people trying to pass a check, trying to buy a zero-turn lawn mower and a bagger for about $12,000."

Store employees stalled the men until deputies came and arrested Oscar Lewis, Teroy McCloud, and Willie Singleton.

Another suspect was arrested in Jacksonville.  Investigators have warrants for four others.
