By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - A man was arrested on Wednesday in connection to a continuing check fraud investigation.

Last Friday, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department responded to the Reidland Road branch of Paducah Bank in response to a man attempting to cash a fraudulent check.  Detectives said 46-year-old John Marvin Winchester Jr, of Chestertown, MD, was inside the bank waiting for the check to be processed. 

The check was made out to a local Paducah business. Detectives said that another man had entered the bank earlier that day and cashed a check made out to the same business. Working with bank officials, it was confirmed that both checks were fraudulently created.

Winchester was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument 2nd degree, a class D felony. 

According to detectives, Winchester, along with another man, had traveled to Paducah from Atlanta last week.

On Wednesday, detectives said they identified the second suspect as 54-year-old Neal Kimes of Atlanta. Kimes was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument 2nd degree and theft by deception over $500-under $10,000, both class D felonies.
