Police said a required signature kept a man from cashing a check that was stolen from a Union church.

Union police said an unknown man tried to cash a $3,300 check at the Arthur State Bank on Wednesday that belonged to McBeth Baptist Church. The bank teller told police they would not cash the check because the church's account requires checks to have two signature, but the man only had one.

The man told the bank teller he was trying to cash the check that was for work he had done for the church, police said.

The man left the bank but police said when they spoke to someone at the church, they discovered someone had broken the glass window on a door and damaged a filing cabinet where the checks were kept.

Police later identified David Pecor, 31, as the suspect. He was arrested and charged with third-degree burglary, obtaining goods under false pretense and petit larceny.
