Four people from Georgia were arrested after a vehicle stop by the North Carolina Highway Patrol Friday.
James Chapman, 27, and Rashad Derrell Rogers, 28, of Decatur, Georgia and Sequidia Martez Corbitt, 29, and Travis Jacolby Davis, 31, both of Atlanta, Georgia, were charged with felony possession of stolen goods. Bond for Davis, Chapman and Corbitt was set at $30,000 each by a magistrate.
Rogers, who was also charged with misdemeanor counts of assault on a government official and resisting, obstructing and delaying a public officer, received a $45,000 bond.
Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell, in a news release, said detectives with the Economic Crime Unit answered a call to assist the highway patrol Friday on Interstate 77 in northern Iredell County.
The NCSHP Crime Interdiction Unit stopped a Dodge Caravan, and during the preliminary investigation, dozens of checks were found as were electronic devices, Campbell said. Troopers then requested assistance from the sheriff’s office.
Campbell said detectives started working the case and quickly determined some of the checks were stolen from other states. The investigation determined the four were producing counterfeit checks, he said. The investigation is continuing.
