Man Accused of Using Bogus Checks Across the State

WILMINGTON -- Police believe a man who tried to buy copper with a bogus check in Wilmington is targeting stores all over the state.

The man was captured on a surveillance camera at Bayside Electric Supply trying to use the check. Detectives say the man was unsuccessful in his attempt to buy $11,000 worth of copper.

Those same detectives say the man used a similar certified Bank of America check to get $9,000 in copper from a store in Cary and $10,000 worth at a store in Roxboro.

They believe the incidents are related because all the checks have the name Robert Jackson on them and are certified Bank of America checks.

If you have any information on this man, please contact the Wilmington Police Department.
