College Station men released on bail in forgeries
Eagle Staff Report
Correction: This story should have said Jordan Brennan was arrested on forgery charges. Also, the story shouldhave said he turned himself in to College Station police at 7:45 a.m. Wednesday.
Two College Station men were released from the Brazos County Jail on Thursday, a day after being charged with forgery.
Police said Eric McConal, 19, tried to cash a check at the First American Bank on University Drive last Friday, but the teller noticed a discrepancy on the check’s signature and the signature on file with the bank. The teller notified police and attempted to stall McConal until officers arrived, but he fled, police said.
Investigators determined that McConal tried to cash the check, which authorities said was stolen by Jordan Brennan, 17, according to court documents.
Forgery warrants were issued for both men. McConal was arrested Wednesday evening and Brennan turned himself in to police about a half hour later.
McConal was released after posting $5,000 bail and Brennan posted a $2,500 bail.
Forgery is a state jail felony punishable by 180 days to two years in a state jail facility and a fine of up to $10,000
