A 26-year-old man was in police custody today after trying to cash a forged check at a bank in Kapolei.
Police said a bank employee noticed the check the man tried to cash looked suspicious.
The employee told her supervisor. The bank then called the account holder, who told them the check was issued to a company and not the man.
Bank employees called police, and officers arrested the man near the Bank of Hawaii at 4480 Kapolei Parkway Friday morning for investigation of second-degree forgery, attempted theft, identity theft, unauthorized possession of personal information, and an outstanding arrest warrant.
