Camden police are looking for a 24-year-old North Carolina man who, twice, tried to cash two counterfeit checks at a Wells Fargo bank totalling nearly $4,000.

According to the police report, Wells Fargo client Jumarious Landry Hall, of Marshville, NC, first showed up at the bank on E. Dekalb Street at 4 pm Tuesday and sought to cash two checks - one for $1900.00 and the other for $1968.32. The teller handed the checks back to Hall and told him they looked like copies of the originals and she could not cash them.

Hall returned the next day at 4pm and again tried to cash the two checks. This time the Wells Fargo teller kept the checks after telling Hall that they were counterfeit. A bank employee told police that Hall started yelling and “getting in her face” so she threatened to call the police, at which point he left the bank and got in a car parked outside with other people in it and left. The 2006 Ford four-door sedan had SC plates #HLQ967.

Hall is described in the police report as 6-feet-2 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
