Alert Cashier Stops Illegal Transaction

An alert cashier stopped a man from using a check stolen from a Chattooga County family, according to a Summerville Police report.

A male walked into Ingles Supermarket in Summerville and tried using a deceased man’s check to pay for items. The clerk knew the family and suspected something was wrong.

The man attempting to use the stolen check told the clerk he was going to his vehicle to retrieve his identification but he did not return.

The check was possibly stolen out of a golf club bag that was located in his truck parked in the backyard at the family’s house, according to the police report.
