Travis Brown, 31, and 34-year-old Melissa Duncan were arrested after fleeing from police after they allegedly attempted to cash a forged stolen check at Choice One Bank, 6795 Courtland Dr.
According to a press release, both suspects have known ties to the Felony Lane Gang, which is known for stealing checks and IDs from parked cars. Gang members often use drive-thru banks and disguises to attempt to cash the checks.
Duncan and Brown are also believed to be tied to three car break-ins in Rockford on Aug. 12. Police also say they were in possession of checks, credit cards and identification of several other people who experienced car break-ins. They are currently being held in the Kent County Jail while awaiting preliminary examinations on an unspecified date. Brown was also wanted in Florida for a felony probation violation warrant.
