Gerard Belga, 31, was charged with forgery and attempted forgery on Tuesday after he was identified as a man who cashed a forged check for $1,000 at Yigo Pay-Less Supermarket on Sunday, according to a magistrate’s complaint filed in the Superior Court of Guam.
A man used an ID with the name “Gary Santos” and cashed the forged check but it wasn’t until the man left that store staffers noticed that the word “hundred” was spelled “hunedred” on the check, documents state.
Video showing the man was disseminated to the Pay-Less stores. An employee at Oka Pay-Less noticed a check with the same misspelling was being used at Oka, documents state. When the man that brought in the check noticed the employee inspecting the check, he asked to get back his ID “and became angry and belligerent,” documents state.
“Santos” was arrested and said he had trouble breathing so he was taken to Guam Memorial Hospital, where he identified himself as Belga, court papers state.
Another man, Andrew Cruz, tried to cash a check at Pay-Less at the Micronesia Mall. Cruz was charged on Monday.
