Montgomery Man Arrested for Cashing Fake Checks

On Tuesday April 2, 2024, the Dothan Police Department was notified by a local banking institution and advised an individual was attempting to cash a fraudulent check and the same individual had already cashed other fraudulent checks at other locations earlier in the day. An alert officer observed the suspect leaving the banking institution after being denied his transaction and he was taken into custody.

After conducting a preliminary investigation, it was determined the suspect, Courtney Jermaine Johnson (33) of Montgomery, AL, had been in possession of fraudulent checks and even passed some of them in exchange for U.S. Currency. Johnson was charged with four counts of Possession of a Forged Instrument third degree, three counts of Theft of Property first degree, and one count of Attempted Theft of Property first degree. He was booked into the Houston County Jail with a $145,000.00 bond.
