(KMOV) – A man was arrested Tuesday for his role of leading a counterfeit check ring in St. Louis, during late 2009 and throughout 2010.
Dante Sumlar, who also went by Micah Riggins and George Marshal, was charged for distributing bogus checks that were cashed at various banks around the St. Louis area.
Local authorities have been seeking to identify and apprehend Sumlar for several months. Authorities in Florida and Alabama have been searching for Sumlar, since 2007, for similar crimes.
The counterfeit securities charge carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years, a $250,000 fine or even both.
Sumlar was profiled on America’s Most Wanted.
