JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
A Jefferson City man who was charged with four counts of forgery in June was arrested Thursday in Columbia.
Justin Trim, 33, was booked into the Boone County Jail at 6:56 p.m. He was eventually transferred to the Cole County Jail and is being held there on a $15,000 bond.
Trim is accused of cashing fraudulent checks totaling more than $17,000.
According to previous reporting, Jefferson City police spoke with an alleged victim on Feb. 24, who said multiple fraudulent checks were cashed from his business account. Police spoke to a witness – a branch manager and information security officer for Jefferson Bank – who provided photos and videos of Trim cashing the checks and copies of the fraudulent checks, according to the probable cause statement.
The witness allegedly told police that Trim provided multiple bank branches with a copy of his driver’s license and signature. Trim allegedly cashed four checks at four separate locations, totaling $17,036.52.
