Riddle was accused of forging two checks, one for $30 and the other for $40, on another person’s account and attempting to cash them at a local convenience store on Aug. 25, 2012.

The bank later contacted the store because the checks appeared to have been forged. Riddle was identified as one of two people who attempted to pass the checks late that evening via a surveillance video from the store.
