A Caldwell man was arrested at a College Station bank on accusations he was trying to cash an unauthorized check.

According to College Station police, authorities were called to a bank on Longmire Drive around 2 p.m. Wednesday after an employee believed that Lawrence Wayne Kerr, 22, was trying to cash a fraudulent check. The employee said Kerr had tried to cash the check at the bank’s drive-through, but the employee noticed the check’s number did not correspond with numbers from recent checks processed through the account. The signature also did not appear to match the signature on file, police said.

The bank called the customer, who said she did not authorize Kerr to withdraw money.

He is charged with forgery of a financial instrument, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail and $10,000 in fines. He is being held in the Brazos County Jail on $5,000 bond.
