BULLHEAD CITY–A Bullhead City man allegedly attempted to cash a forged check Thursday, but the quick actions of a teller landed him behind bars instead.
Travers Wesley Proulx, 42, faces multiple felony charges that include three counts of forgery, fraudulent schemes and artifices and unlawful means of transportation.
Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said officers were called to the Wells Fargo Bank in the 1700 block of Lakeside Drive around 1 p.m. Thursday in reference to a reported forgery attempt.
Fromelt said the suspect, identified as Proulx, was reportedly attempting to pass a forged check on an account of a deceased person.
The bank reported to police that Travers had reportedly successfully cashed a check on August 21 in the amount of $800. However, when he attempted to cash two additional check in the amount of $3,500 and $500, the bank did not cash them and alerted police.
