On 8/9/18 Brattleboro Police were called to a local bank due to an individual stating that he was being forced against his will to cash a fake check.
Brattleboro Police arrived on scene, and attempted to execute a motor vehicle stop on an involved vehicle, which fled the scene.
Police then spoke with the victim. The victim alleged that he had been held against his will in Massachusetts, and then transported to VT, where he was forced to attempt to cash the bad check in two separate locations.
The vehicle that had fled the scene was located in MA, where a brief pursuit ended in the suspect vehicle crashing, and the occupants fleeing on foot.
Later a suspicious vehicle that was thought to be involved was pulled over in Guilford, where MA State Police, Leyden Police, Vermont State Police, and Brattleboro Police all arrived.
Two males were located, while one male again fled the scene.
It was determined that both males were involved, however one of the male’s involvement occurred only in MA. That male was eventually released.
