JACKSON- Police say they have uncovered a huge check fraud ring and believe it stretches beyond Mississippi.
On Saturday, police arrested Ashockie Gamble, Eucharia Onoh, and Dominique York at the Money Man Check Cashing on N. State Street. They found the women with fake checks, fake ID's, and nearly $40,000 in cash.
Police say the women tried to cash $15,000 at another check cashing business earlier that morning. The owner became suspicious, but the women had already left. The owner then called police and followed the women to Money Man, where JPD arrested them.
The women are charged with check forgery, uttering forged checks, conspiracy, and false pretense. They all bonded out of jail Monday morning. Gamble is from Jackson. Onoh and York are from Michigan.
Police say Gamble was the ringleader and provided the women with plane tickets, false addresses, false check stubs, and false lease agreements to get fake Mississippi ID's.
Assistant Police Chief Lee Vance says the FBI could also get involved.
