A man was sentenced, last week, for check fraud and counterfeiting,

53-year-old Arthur Tucker cashed a check worth over $3,200 at Interra Federal Credit Union in Elkhart on November 30.

The check was made out to him from Straightline Enterprises, but the CEO of the company says Tucker had never been employed with them.

According to the Goshen News, reports say Tucker had been in and out of homelessness and that he was approached by a stranger who offered him the check in exchange for a portion of the money.

He was sentenced to 24 months at the Elkhart County Jail with 16 months suspended on reporting probation.
