CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Police are looking for 48 year old John Watson.

Watson is wanted on three counts of forgery. Police say he passed counterfeit checks and cashed them at three area banks.

"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 $1,000, 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. "Fraudulent checks he deposited in his own account."

Bowie said the banks are not to blame.

"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 145 lbs.

If you know where he is call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
