Bogus Check Bust in Killearn

Tallahassee Police surrounded a Killearn home with a search warrant in hand. Police seized computers and a race car engine from a home on Royal Palm Way.

Police say the man who lives there printed a bogus check and used it to buy that nearly $3,000 engine. The company that sent it called the cops when the check came back "counterfeit."

"I believe the check for this transaction was $2895 for this engine block. We found it in the crate so hopefully we can get it back to the victim in the original order."

Thirty-one-year-old Robert Brinker was arrested and charged with forgery and grand theft. Leon County court records show he has similar arrests dating back to 1991 and has been to state prison for it twice already.
