A St. Louis man has been charged with passing fraudulent checks at branches of a Jefferson City bank.

Avery Winks, 55, is charged with two counts of forgery and one count of felony stealing.

A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement shows Winks wrote four fraudulent checks at all four Jefferson Bank locations. The checks totalled more than $9,300.

Bank officials said they found the check numbers had previously been used by the account holder.

The victim told bank officials the signatures on the checks were forged.
