2 Claim They Were Recruited to Cash Fake Checks

  • Photo

IOWA CITY, Iowa Two suspects charged with trying to cash fake checks in Iowa City both claimed someone recruited them to cash the fake checks.

Iowa City Police arrested 18 year-old Dayanara Rudd, a transient, at the Money Station on S. Gilbert Street on Thursday. A police complaint says Rudd tried to cash a fake check from Walgreens that was similar to a bad check cashed Wednesday, about which Hills Bank and Trust had alerted police.

Rudd told officers that a woman recruited her in Cedar Rapids to cash fake checks. Rudd said a woman in a gray van with Illinois plates would give her the checks to cash and then take a portion of the money. Rudd said she has been homeless for three months and it sounded like a good way to make money. Rudd said she did not have a way to get in contact with the woman.

The same day, Iowa City Police arrested 21 year-old Anthony Patterson on theft and forgery charges. Police say he tried to cash fake payroll checks at the Waterfront Hy-Vee, which contacted police.

A police complaint says Patterson told police someone gave him the fake checks to cash in exchange for letting Patterson keep $200 of the cash.

Police have not said if they believe the two cases are connected.
