San Bruno Police: Man Arrested On Narcotics Charges After Trying To Cash Forged Check

SAN BRUNO (CBS SF) – Police in San Bruno have arrested a man on multiple charges, including narcotics possession, after he tried to allegedly cash a forged check at a store last week.

Around 6 p.m. on May 6, officers said they responded to a business on the 200 block of El Camino Real. When they arrived, they talked to the suspect and found the check was stolen during a burglary in the San Jose area.

Officers then discovered that the suspect had what they described as a "large amount" of narcotics in his vehicle. The suspect also had a fake driver's license and what police said were items consistent with identity theft.
