A Licking man is connected to passing bad checks on a closed account.

A Licking man is implicated in passing bad checks in Houston and the area.

An Imperial, Mo., woman came to the Houston Police Department office Dec. 20 and reported someone had been writing checks on a closed account of a 67-year-old Tuscumbia man whom she has power of attorney over.

The woman produced documents indicating that three transactions involving the closed account had occurred at three Houston businesses on Nov. 15.

As a result of an investigation including help from surveillance video from each business, it was determined that a 27-year-old Licking man was the perpetrator. A Texas County Sheriff’s Department deputy located and arrested the man on Dec. 21.

A report was sent to the Texas County prosecuting attorney for charges.

The man had reportedly also written one check in Salem, and the Salem Police Department was contacted.
