At about 1205 hours on July 1, 2009, Ofc. Stu Alcorn was dispatched to a fraud complaint at PNC bank at 401 S. Jefferson Street. A bank teller had called about a woman who had just tried to cash a possibly counterfeit check for over $1,800.00. She left the bank with the check when they told her they would have to verify it with the originating bank.
Ofc. Alcorn arrived and located the suspect walking in an adjacent parking lot. He identified her as Jessica Lynn Ullman. Ofc. Alcorn asked Ullman if he could see the check, and she reached into her purse and gave it to him.
The check was made payable to Ullman by the Stafford County General District Court (Virginia). Ofc. Alcorn was able to contact the court by phone and verify that the check was counterfeit. He also spoke with the court employee whose signature was on the check. She confirmed that she never issued a check for Ullman.
