Suspect says he was paid to cash fraudulent checks
ODESSA, Texas (KMID/KPEJ)- An Odessa man was arrested earlier this month after allegedly cashing fraudulent, possibly stolen, checks. Wesley Kemp, 44, has been charged with Forgery.
According to an affidavit, on November 7, officers with the Odessa Police Department were called to a bank on 42 Street after the branch manager called 911 and said a man was trying to cash a fraudulent check. The manager said the suspect, later identified as Kemp, was trying to cash a $4,461.22 check; she said she recognized Kemp because he had cashed another fraudulent check the week before. The company on which the checks were drawn said it had not yet reached that check number in its checkbook.
