Goose Creek man accused of cashing in on forged time slips

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A Goose Creek man is behind bars accused of cashing in more than $600 worth of forged time slips.

Investigators arrested 42-year-old Joe Charles Travis on Tuesday and charged him with obtaining goods by false pretenses.

On the morning of Aug. 10, police responded to a larceny at Trojan Labor on 735 King Street. The victim said that between late July and early August, Travis turned in five work time slips with forged signatures.

According to the victim, Travis would come to the business at various times with the false signatures on the time slips, alleging that he had worked a number of hours doing electrical work.

Police say when the victim became suspicious, he called Travis' supervisor. The supervisor said that Travis had not worked since late July.

A police report states that the forged time slips totaled $645.
