ALPHARETTA, Ga. — A woman who is alleged to have taken part in numerous incidents of check forgery was arrested in Alpharetta July 26 after trying to cash a fake check.

Employees of the Bank of America on Windward Parkway called police after Samantha Orean Balcom, 21, of Atlanta, entered the business and tried to cash a check. The check appeared fake to the teller and, after calling the account holder, it was determined to be forged.

Balcom’s ID came back as flagged for attempted forgeries in the past. Balcom was arrested for fourth degree forgery.

This report appeared in the August 8 issue of the Milton Herald.
