The Sheriff’s Office is looking for a Charlotte man accused of trying to pass a counterfeit check at an eastern Lincoln County bank on Monday.
Deputies said Kyle David Flood, of 945 N. College Street, tried to cash a more than $850 check at People’s Bank in Denver around 4 p.m.
The teller, suspicious of the request, opted to contact the business listed on the check since the company has an account with the bank, an agency press release said.
Flood fled the property, leaving behind the check and his identification, after the teller urged him to wait while she made the call, deputies said.
The man is wanted for forgery and uttering a forged instrument.
Flood’s information has been entered into the National Crime Information Center, deputies said.
Anyone with information on the man’s whereabouts is asked to contact Sheriff’s Det. Richard Calhoun at (704) 736-4823, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at (704) 732-9050 or the Communications Center at (704) 735-8202.
In the release, deputies also warned of similar operations that have taken place around the county in which criminals recruit homeless people to cash fake business checks.
