KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A 45-year-old man accused of writing fraudulent checks throughout South Carolina has been arrested in Kershaw County.

Keith Jerome Mobley was arrested on four warrants charging him with fraud. He is currently being held in the Kershaw County Detention Center.

Investigators say Mobley cashed four corporate checks worth a total of $3,400 after providing false authorization numbers at Pilot Gas Station off I-20 in Lugoff. The incidents occurred between November 6 and November 10.

According to a report, Mobley was using fraudulent checks from a bank that serves truck drivers who do not like to carry large sums of cash.

Deputies say Mobley is seen cashing each check on surveillance video.

Investigators say this may not the first time Mobley has used fraudulent checks.

"This investigation has opened the door to numerous other incidents involving Mobley throughout the state of South Carolina and now in Columbus, Ohio," said Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews. "Truck stops seem to be the target of Mobley's activities and we expect there to be more of these incidents between Columbia and Columbus.

Law enforcement agencies in Clinton, SC; Cayce, SC; Gaffney, SC; Columbia, SC' Dillion, SC' Georgetown, SC' St. George, SC; and Orangeburg, SC are also investigating incidents involving Mobley.
