Three get prison for passing bad checks at Tilton outlets
Sentenced and ordered to pay restitution to businesses in the area and nationally were Quentin West of Cleveland, Edgar Rose of Pittsburgh, and Omar Patterson of Pittsburgh.
Police responded and then began observing the three men. In the next 45 minutes, the men wrote several bad checks to numerous stores around the mall, he said.
After obtaining search warrants, police arrested the men for passing bad checks in Tilton. Police later learned the trio was part of a large multi-state counterfeit ring which had written counterfeit checks at several major retail chain stores across the country using fake licenses.
After two years, after local police worked closely with the U.S. Attorney's Office and U.S. Secret Service, Cormier said, the case came to a close with the men ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $591,342 to U.S. retailers and serve out their sentences in federal prison.
West was sentenced to 42 months in federal prison, with three years supervised release, and was ordered to pay $282,242 in restitution.
"The case was a classic example of organized retail crime and how large these cases can get, usually spanning several states and involving thousands of dollars. It is always good to stop a crew like this and get restitution for the victims," Cormier said.
