Local man busted for check fraud

Aspen police arrested a local man Thursday morning for an alleged stolen check-writing scheme, according to officer Jim Crowley.

Adam J. Davis, 28, of Aspen, was arrested for two counts of felony theft, two counts of misdemeanor theft, four counts of felony forgery and one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief, the report states.

According to Crowley’s report, Davis allegedly took his estranged girlfriend’s checkbook and forged her signature on four checks totaling $2,400, beginning in January 1998.

Davis allegedly told police in an interview yesterday that he wrote the checks to pay for cocaine.

The criminal mischief charge stems from an incident after Davis had been “kicked out” of his girlfriend’s residence on May 7, the report states. Davis allegedly returned to the apartment later that day and kicked down the door to gain entry, damaging the door’s frame and locks, according to the report.

As of 7 p.m. Thursday, Davis remained in custody at the Pitkin County Jail on a $21,750 bond.
