Man tried to pass-off photocopy as a check, police say

Termayne Lloyd, 20, of Ludlow, is accused of trying to cash a fraudulent check at an Indian Orchard convenience store.

INDIAN ORCHARD, Mass. (WWLP) – A man from Ludlow has been arrested after Springfield police say he tried to cash a fake check that didn’t look anything like the real thing.

Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney told 22News that Termayne Lloyd, 20 was arrested Sunday morning at Orchard Variety on Main Street in Indian Orchard.

According to Delaney, police were called to the store around 9:15 A.M. The owner of the store pointed police to Lloyd, who was at their check cashing window, trying to redeem a check for $110.74.

Delaney says police went over to Lloyd and looked at the check, which they discovered was a photocopy printed on an ordinary piece of white paper and cut out with a pair of scissors.

Lloyd is being charged with uttering a forged instrument. He is scheduled for arraignment Monday in Springfield District Court.
