CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A woman tries to cash a stolen check Saturday morning, but the bank teller doesn't fall for it. Police arrested Amber Jones after she went to the American Bank on the 4800 block of Alameda. Police say it was there where she tried to cash a check that was reported stolen yesterday, but the teller noticed that Jones's id was a fake.

Police say the id was also stolen from another victim back in July.

Police also say Jones was wearing a wig to try and match the photo on the id. The tellers refused to cash that check and called police instead. Jones was arrested and now faces several charges.
