A cunning Florida man bought a $140,000 Porsche with a fake check printed on his computer at home
Walton County, Florida (WSVN) – A Florida man tried to learn how to print fake checks on his computer at home to buy a luxury car and expensive watches with a fake check. When the incident was discovered, he faced charges of using forged checks.
Deputy Mayors Casey William Kelly, 42, was arrested last Thursday, according to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office. The reason for his arrest was trying to buy expensive things with a forged check that he had printed at home.
Investigators said Kelly tried to buy an expensive car on July 27. Kelly bought a Porsche 911 Turbo from Destin dealership with a fake check for $139,203.05. A short time later, the vehicle was reported stolen by the agent to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators said that the next day, Kelly attempted to purchase three Rolexes from a jeweler in Miramar Beach. Kelly presented a check for $61,521 to the jeweler to purchase the watches. However, the goldsmith said he wanted to see if the check could be cashed and keep Kelly on hold.
After the jeweler learned that the check was forged, he reported the situation to law enforcement. Accordingly, the mayors’ deputies came to the scene and arrested Kelly. Kelly admitted that he never received the checks from any bank and printed them on his computer at home.
Kelly now faces charges of grand theft and check fraud.
