Man attempts to forge check, arrested for multiple charges

Posted:
BELLMEAD -

A Corinth man who tried to forge a check at a local supermarket, ended up being arrested and charged with several crimes Sunday evening.

Police say they received a call on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. from the HEB in Bellmead about a man who was trying to cash a forged check. The suspect, Ricky Mack Dickens, had presented paper identification without a photo. 

When police arrived, they found Dickens walking away from the supermarket accompanied by his 9-year-old son.  As officers approached him, Dickens ran away while leaving his son standing in the parking lot.

"We see [drug] possession quite a bit. We see forgeries quite a bit, but for someone to leave their child - that just takes it to a whole other level," said Bellmead Police Detective, Michael Miller.

Officers were able to chase down Dickens and arrest him in the parking lot of HEB. Police found him in possession of a check book belonging to a third party with the same name on the checks as on the paper ID. Dickens was also found to be wanted out of Denton County on burglary and possession of a controlled substance charges.

The suspect was placed in the back seat of a patrol car and when removed later, officers found a small bag of crystal meth in the seat. Police believed Dickens had tried to hide the drugs.

Dickens was taken to the McLennan County Jail on charges of Forgery, Fraudulent Possession of an ID, Abandonment of a Child, Possession of a Controlled Substance along with the Denton County charges. 

Child Protective Services was contacted and took custody of the 9-year-old boy. Detective Miller said officers' attempts to get in contact with the boy's other family members were unsuccessful.
