CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police have charged a boyfriend and girlfriend with counterfeiting and forging City of Charleston Housing Authority checks.

Charleston Police Department officers arrested 32-year-old Omar Grant and 21-year-old Shakina Singleton, both of 236 Hanover Street, on Tuesday.

Investigators say the couple ran a scheme which took valid checks and then used a "Seagate Check writing program" to create copies which were later forged by the suspects.

Police said they seized the HP computer from the home when they served a search warrant on Tuesday.

Both suspects were taken to the Charleston County Detention Center. They are charged with conspiracy to commit forgery.
