Attempted forgery foiled by bank employee

A resort’s bank account was almost drained of close to ten thousand dollars on Tuesday, but quick thinking by a bank employee aborted the theft. On March tenth, Jerome Augustus Arnold went to the Albert Street branch of Atlantic Bank to cash a cheque valued at nine thousand eight hundred dollars issued to him by Saint George’s Caye Resort. The bank clerk became suspicious when the signatures on the cheque did not match the ones they had on file for that particular account. The clerk refused to cash the cheque and Arnold left. The incident was reported to Susan Spencer of Saint George’s Caye Resort who discovered that several blank cheques were missing from her cheque book. Augustus is wanted for questioning.
