Two arrested for bad checks

MATTOON, Ill. (WCIA) -- Two people are in custody for what police are calling a "check writing scheme."

Police arrested 48-year old Charles Buck, of Mattoon, and 37-year old Amy Cavanah, of Charleston, for prohibited deposits.  

Officials say Cavanah would write checks from her personal checking account to Buck, knowing she did not have the funds to cover the checks.

Buck would then deposit the checks into his account and immediately withdraw the funds, knowing Cavanah did not have the funds in her account to cover his deposit.
