Forged I.D. costs O.W. man $1000

An Orange Walk man is a thousand dollars poorer tonight, thanks to an observant bank teller. According to police, on Wednesday morning Jason Banner entered the Belize Bank branch in Sugar City to cash a cheque made out to him for four thousand dollars. While the cheque was apparently good, a piece of I.D. he presented–his voter’s identification card–was not. Police were called and their investigation revealed that the card had the wrong registration number and a forged registering officer’s signature. The twenty-three year old was charged with forgery and possessing false documents. The thousand-dollar fine will presumably be paid out of the proceeds of the cheque.
