LEWISBURG, W. Va (WVVA)-- Three have been arrested in Greenbrier County, charged with forgery and uttering.

 

Alexander Shelton, 18, of Lewisburg was arrested Thursday by Detective Vance from the Lewisburg Police Department.

In court documents, Vance said Shelton cashed some checks belonging to his father several times throughout the month of January. The bank notified him that his son was cashing checks in his name.

According to Stevens, McNeely (pictured at left) was working with David Lee Bennett, 21, of Rainelle.  Stevens said the two had planned the crimes prior to going into the store and cashing the checks together.
