A hot check thief hits Mount Pleasant and other cities hard in East Texas according to the Mt Pleasant Texas Police Department’s Facebook page. You are asked if you have received a check from John Granger.
The article states, “The check shown is written on a closed account. The color of the check shown is not the original color when the check was written. Business owners should look at the account numbers and name on the check.” Reportedly, the suspect wrote checks buying vehicles, jewelry, and other items. Mt Pleasant was hit for over $85,000.
