2 men arrested for Check Fraud/Uttering & Publishing

On April 27, 2010 @ approximately 5:10 PM, Ofc Greg Morabito of the Utica Police Department was patrolling in the area of the Home Depot located at 45201 Northpointe Blvd. He noticed 2 subjects acting suspiciously as they were leaving the store. Upon checking with store personnel he discovered that one of the subjects had just attempted to pass a possible fraudulent check to 2 separate clerks.

The subjects were stopped by Ofc Morabito who discovered 3 Dell Laptop Computers and 8 Dewalt Drills in the vehicle. Through further investigation it was determined that these subjects had gone to several area Home Depot and Walmart stores where they purchased these items using the counterfeit checks. The total value of the theft is approximately $5000.00

The subjects, a 42 year old man from Detroit and a 26 year old man from Atlanta, GA, were arrested and are currently lodged at the Utica Police Department pending the authorization of charges by the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Utica Police Department is working with other local agencies to secure criminal charges in those jurisdictions.
