Remaining Check Scam Subject Arrested

Another suspect is arrested in a counterfeit check scam. Debra Browning of Kilgore was arrested on forgery charges Thursday. Whitehouse police say Browning helped her son Shad Jones mastermind a $20,000 check-scam. Jones and two other woman were taken into custody earlier this week.

Investigators say the suspects created counterfeit checks using Tyler attorney Keith Miller's account number. Browning was once a client of Miller's. Police believe she got his account numbers from a settlement check from his office. She is in now in the Rusk County jail facing forgery charges.

The suspects managed to cash seven checks at East Texas banks before getting caught.
