Upper Arlington police last week arrested a 22-year-old Columbus man for allegedly cashing fraudulent checks at three different bank branches.

Tajuan Davis, a resident of the 900 block of East Main Street, was charged with forgery, a fifth-degree felony, after the manager of a bank branch in the 2800 block of Fishinger Road reported at 4:03 p.m. April 15 that a man was attempting to cash a fraudulent check.

The manager told police he reported the incident after being contacted by an employee at one of the bank's other branches who said a man of the same description already had cashed two identical checks at two other branches.

Upon questioning, the man told police he was cashing paychecks from an employer and didn't know they were fake.

Davis was subsequently arrested, taken to Upper Arlington Police Division headquarters and charged with forgery.
