Rensselaer Man Arrested for Check Forgery
On August 11, 2017 David Spurr age 42 of Rensselaer was arrested on a warrant for forgery, a level 6 felony, and theft, a class A misdemeanor. He was taken to Jasper County Detention Center and booked on those charges. The warrant stems from a case started on January 16, 2017.
Probable cause affidavits say, the victim contacted Rensselaer Police on January 27, 2017. He reported leaving his checkbook at Mr. Spurr’s residence. He found where someone had cashed a check for $200 without his approval. Corporal Chad Hammond was assigned to the case.
Corporal Hammond spoke with the bank employees where the check was cashed. Employees recognized both suspects in this case. One was David Spurr. The bank also provided copies of the vehicle both employees were in. Reports say, one of the suspects told police, he was at Mr. Spurr’s residence when Mr. Spurr wrote out the check and asked him to cash it. That suspect told police he signed the back of the check and Mr. Spurr drove him to the bank. The suspect told police that Mr. Spurr told him he couldn’t cash the check since he was missing his identification.
Police expect additional arrests from this case in the near future.
