Forgery And Stolen Checks Investigation Ends With Three Arrests
Chillicothe Police have been investigating reports of stolen and forged checks in Chillicothe and completed that investigation Tuesday. Police Chief Jon Maples says the investigation came to a close when detectives, officers, and Livingston County Sheriff’s Deputies and Zaki serve a search warrant at a location in the 100 block of Mitchell Road. Chief Maples says officers and detectives located several items which included area residents’ checks, professional forging equipment, a large amount of narcotics, firearms, and false identifications.
They also arrested three people, a 64-year-old man, a 46-year-old man, and a 37-year-old woman, all of Kansas City. All three face charges that include alleged forgery, possession of forgery equipment, stolen property, stolen identification, stolen checks, possession of controlled substance, unlawful possession of a firearm, and child endangerment. One man and the woman were transferred to the Daviess-DeKalb County Regional Jail pending the filing of formal charges. The other man suffered a medical emergency and was transported to the hospital.
The Chief says they also removed a child from the home. She was turned over to a family member later in the day.
