Suspect in fake check incident arrested

October 7, 2010

A Magee woman wanted in connection with the recent passing of a fake scholarship check at a local business was arrested Wednesday night, Starkville police say.
Jennifer M. Reed, 38, was arrested about 8 p.m. Wednesday on a charge of uttering a forgery, said Police Department Sgt. Chadd Garnett on Thursday.
“She turned herself in after we made contact with her by phone,” Garnett said.
Reed was released on a $5,000 bond and will make an initial Municipal Court appearance on Nov. 1.
Reed was wanted in connection with the cashing of a fake check for more than $3,800 at the offices of Moreland Inc. on Highway 12 in early September.
Reed told staff members there that the check was for a scholarship and was asked for her driver’s license before the check was cashed, which was used to trace her address after the check was revealed to be fake, police said.
Checks by police revealed that Reed had one conviction in 1998 on embezzlement charge in Columbus, as well as an extensive arrest record on numerous charges as embezzlement, grand larceny, uttering a forgery, cocaine possession and methamphetamine possession dating back to 2001.
Her prior arrests all occurred in Columbus or Lowndes County, police said.
