ALPHARETTA, Ga. An Atlanta woman was arrested Nov. 7 after she allegedly tried to cash a fake check at a local bank.

Employees of the BB&T Bank on Windward Parkway told police Sandy Burns, 43, of Atlanta, came into the bank and presented a check for $920.78 to be cashed. The bank account it was drawn from has had several fake checks associated with it and raised alerts with the teller. The owner of the account was contacted and denied issuing any check to Burns.

When police arrived, Burns said she was approached by a man called "Mr. Frank" downtown and offered work cleaning. When the job was done, she was given the check with instructions to cash it and split it with Frank.

Burns was arrested for forgery.
