A Coralville man has been accused of attempting to cash a fraudulent check.

Torrance Crawford, 21, was charged Oct. 3 with forgery and second-offense possession of a controlled substance.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers were dispatched to Money and More, 1025 S. Riverside Drive, after receiving reports of a man trying to cash a fraudulent check.

During the investigation, Crawford was located in the back of a vehicle allegedly associated with the incident.

Officers reportedly witnessed Crawford continually placing his hands in the pocket of the seat in front of him in the car. He stated he had no ID and provided officers with a false name and date of birth.

Following this, officers searched the car and allegedly found another fraudulent check, Crawford’s ID, and a marijuana cigarette.

Second-offense possession of a controlled substance is an aggravated misdemeanor. Forgery is a Class-D felony.
