Three Rochester Residents Charged With Fake Check Scheme

  • Text size: + -

Three Rochester residents were arrested after police in Macedon say they cashed fraudulent payroll checks.

Brianna Meecham, 23; Mark Mathis, 27; and Michael Walker, 33, were arrested Friday in connection with the fraudulent production and cashing of computer generated payroll checks.

Police say Meecham attempted to cash a fake payroll check at a Lyons National Bank branch Thursday using another person's driver's license. When police got there, Meecham ran out of the bank and got into a waiting vehicle where Mathis and Walker were waiting.

After they were arrested, police learned the three had committed similar crimes at the Ontario branch of Lyons National Bank.

Meecham is being held on $10,000 cash bail, Mathis on $25,000; and Walker is being held without bail due to other felony convictions.
