Story by Shannon Taylor Senior Investigative Reporter

On Dec. 1 around 10:39 a.m. Investigator Kerry Workman with the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department spoke with a man in reference to having some personal checks stolen.

The victim stated that he had two personal checks stolen with his name forged on them and cashed without his permission. He stated that he had contacted his bank, The Bank of Gleason, and had the account frozen to prohibit any further checks from being cashed. The victim brought an affidavit of forgery from the bank along with copies of the two checks.

Workman informed the victim that a report of forgery would be completed. One of the checks was in the amount of $100 dated Nov. 4 and was cashed at Walmart in Martin on Nov. 5 at 8:26 a.m. The other check was in the amount of $100 dated Nov. 8 and was also cashed at Walmart.

Workman was able to make contact with loss prevention at Walmart and video footage of the checks being cashed was collected on Dec. 1 at 10:55 a.m. Workman was able to identify the person responsible for taking and forging the checks as 29-year-old David Brewer from Greenfield.

Brewer has been charged with two counts of forgery and theft of property.
