ANTHONY, Kan. (AP) -- Police in south-central Kansas say four people have been arrested in Alabama in connection with a $63,000 Kansas check fraud case.
KWCH-TV reports Mobile police stopped a car with Texas plates on Tuesday. Officers reported smelling marijuana and finding several checks that were passed earlier this month at a Kanza Bank branch in Anthony, Kan.
A Virginia man and three Florida women were arrested.
The Kansas investigation began with reports of more than $13,000 in stolen checks being cashed at the Anthony bank. Police also learned that nearly $50,000 worth of stolen checks were passed at Kanza branches in Kingman and Wichita.
Police say one of the Florida women was seen on surveillance video cashing checks in Anthony, where several purses had been stolen from cars.
