JONESBORO, Ark. – A Jonesboro man has been taken into custody following an incident in which he is accused of attempting to cash counterfeit checks at a bank.

The incident occurred shortly after 10 AM on June 12 at Regions Bank located at 2400 East Highland Drive. Police were called to the scene and apprehended Marquall Webb, a 31-year-old resident of Jonesboro. During the arrest, officers collected copies of four suspicious checks, a withdrawal slip, and a copy of the suspect’s identification as evidence.

Webb is now facing charges related to forgery. The incident report indicates that he has been charged with forgery in the first degree, which constitutes a Class B felony in the state of Arkansas. If convicted, this offense carries a potential sentence of five to twenty years of imprisonment, along with a fine of up to $15,000. However, based on jail records, it appears that Webb was booked on a forgery 2 charge, which corresponds to a Class C felony. This offense carries a potential sentence of three to ten years in prison, along with a fine of up to $10,000.

Regardless of the exact charge, the allegations against Webb are considered serious felonies. Additionally, he is also being held on other outstanding warrants.
