SELMA, AL (WSFA) -
The Selma Police Department arrested a man on Sunday and charged him with first degree forgery.
According to police, officers responded to the 1500 block of Highway 14 East at 7:54 a.m. in reference to a forgery complaint. When officers arrived at the scene, they met with the Loss Prevention Officer who stated that 51-year-old Robert Cook, of York, attempted to purchase $1,400 worth of items from the store with a forged check and forged drivers license.
The store clerk was alerted to the possible forgery after the suspect allegedly wrote a check for the items, and presented the check with an Alabama driver's license identifying him as being a white male with blonde hair and blue eyes. After the cashier noticed the race listed on the license did not match the suspect's race, the Loss Prevention Officer was alerted as was the Selma Police Department before the suspect could leave the business.
The suspect was detained at the business and was transported to the Selma Police Department where an interview was conducted concerning the allegations. The suspect, however, refused to speak with detectives concerning the case, and was arrested after detectives determined that there was "probable cause".
Cook was charged with one count of first degree forgery and one count of second degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. Cook was transported to the Dallas County Jail where his bond was set at $45,000.
