Deputies have arrested a man who was wanted in connection with a counterfeit check scam involving the county clerk of courts.

Spartanburg officers said Tura Miller, 34, and Courtney Cheeks, 23, were cashing checks with a routing number belonging to the Spartanburg County clerk of courts at local Walmarts.

Police arrested Cheeks in July, and she was later released on a $5,000 bond.

Reports said Cheeks cashed a $1,500 check that appeared to be made out to her from a local business at the Walmart on Dorman Center Drive, and the check was connected to the county's account.

Police said Miller cashed a $1,400 check from an account at the Walmart on East Main Street.

Deputies said Miller was arrested at his home in Woodruff after they received several Crimestopper tips about him being at different locations.

Miller was charged with four counts of forgery along with another bench warrant. He was being held in jail on a $20,000 bond.
