MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) - Moncks Corner Police are looking for a husband and wife believed to be behind a big counterfeit check ring.
Investigators say 26-year-old Harry Capers III and his wife, 34-year-old Keya Capers, created phony checks that were passed at the Moncks Corner Walmart in December.
Police say the bogus checks appear to be written on letter heads of legitimate businesses.
"They get a hold of this paper, they get a hold of some account information, they scan it into the computer and they're printing checks," said Moncks Corner Police Lt. Michael Roach.
Roach says the Capers' recruited people who really need cash to help them commit the crime.
"They get their driver's license and ID Information, they print it up on the check and give them the check," Roach said.
Roach said the Capers' met their accomplices in the Moncks Corner Walmart parking lot and left their recruits do their dirty work for them.
"They go into Walmart, cash the check," Roach explained. "They're waiting outside. They come out, OK, you get a couple hundred dollars out of this. Anywhere from a $1,000 to a $1,300 check and then they're pocketing the rest of the money."
Roach said surveillance video caught the Capers' in the act.
"It clearly shows them," Roach said. "They're not involved in going in. These other people are taking all the risk, and when they get the money they meet up in the parking lot."
So far, three of the Capers' alleged partners in crime have been arrested. Eight or nine others people are being sought, but right now, Roach's radar is on Harry Capers and his wife.
"We need to get him off the streets before he starts passing any more of these," Roach said.
Five of the Capers' alleged accomplices have been identified as Roy Johnson, Kiera Curry, Shalay Wigfall, Ahmad Jenkins and Kimberly Allen.
The Capers are known to stay at motels in the North Charleston area.
