Oxford police Thursday were investigating several stolen checks totalling more than $6,000 cashed at two local businesses.

A 47-year-old Heflin man told police Tuesday he believed his girlfriend’s son stole his check book last month, according to Oxford police Lt. L.G. Owens.

The suspect wrote nine checks totalling $6,397, according to police reports. Four checks were cashed at Dorsey’s Super Market at 601 Main St. in Oxford between April 17 and May 7. Five checks were also cashed at Check N Go on U.S. 78 from April 19 to May 10.

Police still were investigating the theft Thursday afternoon, Owens said.

A suspect could be charged with nine counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument, all felonies, Owens said.
