HAMLET — A woman has been arrested and a man is wanted in connection with a fraud case involving bad checks.
Hamlet police say Anquilla Douglas, 34, went into the city’s BB&T branch and cashed several checks written to her by Anthony Jamison, 33, of Rockingham, totaling more than $1,500.
Police say both parties knew the checks were “no good.”
Douglas was arrested Wednesday night and jailed under a $10,000 secured bond.
Police say Jamison has not yet been apprehended but a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Both Douglas and Jamison are charged with four counts each of obtaining money or property by false pretenses and conspiracy to obtain property by false pretenses.
Court records show Douglas has a pending charge of failing to return rented property where purchase is an option in Cumberland County.
Jamison was arrested earlier this month in connection with a scheme to sell stolen cars to a local salvage yard with Roneah Monet Douglas.
According to court records, Jamison is currently facing five counts each of larceny of a motor vehicle and obtaining property by false pretenses, in addition to charges of assault on a female, second-degree trespassing and misdemeanor larceny.
N.C. Department of Public Safety records show Jamison has spent more than five years behind bars on numerous felony charges dating back to 1999.
