On Tuesday, November 22nd at approximately 4:00 pm officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department responded to the 3900 block of Kemp Blvd (Kemp Discount) in reference to a check suspicious person. Upon arrival officers spoke to employees who stated a subject identified as 25 year old Troy Shelton came into the business and attempted to pass a check from Action Auto Salvage and Repair in the amount of $400.00.
The employee stated due to the amount of the check they called the business to verify the check was accurate. The employee then spoke with the business owner who arrived on scene and stated the signature on the check was not his and he had not authorized any checks to be written or passed. The owner also stated he had never seen Shelton on his property before and had never given him a check from his business.
Shelton stated his friend wrote the check to him and he went inside of Kemp Discount to cash it.
Shelton was arrested and transported to the Wichita County jail without incident where he was charged with Forgery.
