Three people have been charged with forgery after trying to cash two fraudulent checks at a Creve Coeur bank on Tuesday.
Kimberly Collins, 41, Latoya Johnson, 28, both of University City, and Ramsey Hampton, 43, of Chicago, each were charged Wednesday with two felony counts of forgery.
said the three used fraudulent Michigan birth certificates and Social Security Numbers to obtain Missouri non-driver’s identification, then created counterfeit checks for an M&I account holder made out to their fictitious names.
Collins cashed a check Tuesday for $662.75 at the at 10911 Olive Blvd., police said. Johnson then attempted to cash another check for $672.50 later the same day at the same branch. However, a teller was suspicious of the check and contacted the account holder, confirming the checks were fraudulent.
Bond for each of the defendants is $30,000.
