LINCOLNTON – Authorities in Lincoln County are looking for a man who they say has been passing counterfeit checks in at least three counties.

The checks have been written on an account for Willis Plumbing Company of Vale, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. The owner of that company reported that a payment he had placed in his home mailbox never got to the recipient.

Four counterfeit checks, totaling about $2,000, were cashed between Aug. 13 and 18 at locations in Denver, Concord and Charlotte.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Detective Richard Calhoun of the sheriff’s office, 704-735-8856, or Crime Stoppers, 704-736-8909.
