Auburn police charge two men with possession of a forged instrument | Crime
On Thursday, June 28, 2012 the Auburn Police Division arrested Jamal R. Brown, 29, of Auburn, and Lewis T. Gray, 24, of Opelika, Alabama, on warrants charging each with Possession of a Forged Instrument 2nd Degree. The arrests stem from a call police received this same date stating that a man was attempting to cash a forged check at a financial institution located in the 1500 block of South College Street. Responding officers contacted Brown at the scene and took him into custody. Gray, who was with Brown, had earlier in the day attempt to cash a forged check at a financial institution located in the 1200 block of South Donahue Drive. He too was taken into custody.
It was further discovered that Brown had an outstanding warrant on him for a similar crime committed in Auburn in September 2011 and thus was charged with a second count of Possession of a Forged Instrument 2nd Degree. Both men were transported to the Lee County Detention Center where Brown’s bond was set at $6,000 and Gray’s at $3,000.
