THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Four men pretended to be legitimate customers at two Thomasville National Bank branches Friday. But police say the checks Bee Joseph, Jeffrey Sanders, Carl Walker, and Ricky Rumph tried to cash were forged.
Two of the suspects were at the main location on Broad Street. "A few minutes after we responded to the first location at 301 North Broad, we received another call to respond to 1320 Remington Avenue at the Thomasville National Bank branch office," said TPD Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton.
Carl Walker actually cashed one of the forged checks successfully at the branch office Friday morning. When he came back to do it again, a red flag showed up on the account. "The owners of the account was called to the bank and it was discovered they did not know these people who were trying to cash the checks on their account," said Hampton.
When Bee Joseph and Jeffrey Sanders were turned down at the main office, they attempted to flee the scene. Joseph got away, but the same can not be said for Sanders. "The bank personnel pursued one suspect on foot in the area and they were able to subdue and hold one at the bank until the officers arrived," said Hampton.
Officers say Joseph was picked up minutes later at a nearby Arby's. Both Walker and Rumph were arrested on site at the Remington location. Investigators are still trying to figure out how these men were able to obtain the account information.
Police are still investigating and say other people may have been involved in the scheme. The four suspects arrested Friday are charged with check fraud.
