Cumberland man arrested for forging checks

Posted January 20, 2010

— Cumberland County sheriff's deputies arrested a man Tuesday at a Spring Lake Walmart after he allegedly tried to pass a forged check.

Store security officers were familiar with Omar Rashard McFadden, 20, of 4968 Fieldcrest Drive, deputies said, because he had a history of similar crimes. They held him at the store, on Lillington Highway, until deputies could respond.

Authorities said McFadden had cashed fraudulent checks at Walmart on numerous occasions and is a suspect in what they think is a forgery ring operating in the Fayetteville area.

McFadden faces charges of felony forgery and uttering and was released from the Cumberland County Detention Center after posting a $2,500 bond.

    was not to smart to go back to the same place he had committed this same crime before. Lock him up and throw away the key.

    Uttering: Third definition "to begin the circulation of (counterfeit money or a forgery)".

    Not a dairy-related term.
