18-year-old Lynn Hernandez Perez was charged with criminal attempted theft of property, forgery, identity theft, and possession of marijuana after she tried cashing a check at Suntrust Bank, but the account holder informed bank staff that it was a counterfeit.
On May 14th, officers responded to a suspicious person call at SunTrust Bank located at 4700 Knight Arnold. The teller, Nancy Webb, said that Lynn Hernandez Perez was in a white 2012 Honda Accord in the drive-thru line. Lynn tried to cash a $4,069 check from a SunTrust Bank account held by Harold and Ivy Lewis.
When Webb called Lewis to confirm the check, Ivy answered and told Webb that she did not authorize the check and that it was a counterfeit. After placing Lynn into custody, police impounded the vehicle and during the search they found 9.5 grams of marijuana.
Lynn Hernandez Perez was arrested and charged with criminal attempted theft of property, forgery, identity theft, and possession of marijuana. Her bond was set at $10,000 but was later released on her own recognizance.
