A 19-year-old man is facing a felony charge after police said he tried to cash a forged check from a local business.

Devaughn Kendell King was arraigned Thursday by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin on a charge of forgery by passing.

King presented First Texas Bank with a $2,700 check from T&R Fence LLC, according to an arrest affidavit.

When a bank employee called to check the validity of the check, T&R Fence denied it had issued a check to King.

After he was picked up by police, King said a man gave him the check and asked him to cash it. He said that a woman gave him the check, and said he intended to cash the check and keep the money. Potvin set King’s bond at $20,000.
