Talladega police are investigating the theft and subsequent forgery of at least half a dozen checks from the Community Action Agency of East Central Alabama.

According to Capt. Leon Thomas, CAA staff members became aware of the theft when notified that their checking account was overdrawn. A total of six checks totaling $2,726.95 are believed stolen and forged.

Thomas said three of the checks were written to Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Cropwell, and the remaining three were written to Dynamic Services in Brecon.

Thomas said that a former CAA employee had been identified as a suspect in the case, but as of Thursday no arrests had been made.

Forgery in the second degree is a Class C felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison.
