An arrest warrant was issued March 4 against a Sallisaw man who is also a suspect in a recent burglary at the Farmers Co-Op.
In a separate case, Scottie R. “Boomer” Scott, 36, was charged with possession of forged instruments, a felony punishable by imprisonment in the State Penitentiary for up to two years or in the county jail for up to one year, a fine of up to $1,000 or both.
According to a police report, a female individual went to the Roland Police Department on Jan. 23 in reference to checks belonging to her being deposited at Firstar Bank in Roland.
The individual said she went out of town during the week of Jan. 18-26 and while gone, her house was burglarized and checks were stolen.
She gave police a copy of two different checks belonging to her Arvest Bank account.
Firstar Bank provided police with video footage of the transactions, which revealed a suspect identified as Scottie Scott.
A Firstar official told police that once the checks were deposited, the money was immediately spent. She stated that Arvest Bank sent the checks back to Firstar for Closed Account and Frozen/Blocked Account, which resulted in Firstar taking a loss. She noted that Firstar would like restitution for the amount the bank lost.
