Limestone County authorities say investigators arrested an Anderson man after finding him with checkbooks sticking out of his pocket while working a burglary case.
Deputies say they were working a burglary case Wednesday where several checkbooks were reported stolen. They later determined that Heath Allen Griffin, 35, of Anderson was a suspect in the case.
Investigators say they found Griffin at his home where he had two checkbooks sticking out of his coat pocket while standing in his yard. After they asked Griffin to hand over the checkbooks, they found that the checkbooks belonged to the person who reported them stolen.
Authorities say they later discovered several boxes of documents, computers and blank checks, which led them to believe Griffin was producing counterfeit checks. Griffin was arrested with probable cause and charged with trafficking in stolen identities and possession of a forgery device.
His total bond was set at $7,500.
