CORAL SPRINGS, FL – The 55-year-old man came to Coral Springs all the way from Miami to allegedly cash a stolen check, a police report said.
Earlier this month, Thomas Henley tried to cash a check for $3,490 at Space Coast Credit Union at 11504 West Sample Road through someone else’s account using fake identification. But an employee realizing that Henley’s ID was fake, and called the police.
Officers charged Henley, of Miami, with theft, forgery and fraud charges, the report said.
Henley, of Miami, told police a man named “Jay” at the Salvation Army in Miami offered him a 10 percent cut of the cash if he tried to pass the stolen check, the report said. So, on July 3, Henley and Jay arrived at the credit union in a minivan, Henley went inside to cash the check, and Jay left before police showed up.
Henley later admitted to police that he was using a fake ID and fraudulent check, telling officers he was “wrong,” the report said.
During the arrest, Henley needed medical attention.
Officers took him to Broward Health Coral Springs for an evaluation before he was taken to Broward County Jail.
