CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -Charleston Police are looking for John Watson.

Watson, 48, is wanted on three counts of forgery. Investigators say Watson created counterfeit checks and passed them at banks on James Island and West of the Ashley.

"These checks were printed obviously on a computer somewhere or something like that, and we need to get Mr. Watson in here and talk with him," said Charleston Police Cpl. Fred Bowie.

Police say the total dollar amount of the phony checks was well over a thousand dollars, and at least one of them was made to look like it came from the town of Mt. Pleasant.

"The check ended up being a fraudulent check. It was never documented by the city," said Bowie.

"The checks are very well manufactured. We're wondering about that. They have the correct numbers on them and all of that, so the bank wouldn't be suspicious."

John Watson stands 6'1" and weighs about 165 lbs.

His last known address was on Honey Hill Road on James Island.

If you have any information, call crime stoppers at 554-1111. You don't have to give your name and may earn a cash reward.
