JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland police say four people are facing charges after officers busted them using forged checks Wednesday afternoon.

Ridgeland police officers responded to BankPlus on Pear Orchard Road around 3 p.m. for a report of two people cashing a forged check and attempting to cash another one. The tellers at the bank reportedly became suspicious and the pair fled the bank in the silver Chevy Malibu, according to police.

While officers were taking a report at the bank, employees at the bank told the officers that the suspects were at the BankPlus on Highway 51 in Ridgeland.

Officers responded and arrested Patrick John Lee, 45, of Greenville, MS, and Thaddius A. Dogan, 27, of Charleston, MS, inside the bank.

A Ridgeland police officer spotted a silver Malibu leaving the parking lot. The two people inside the vehicle, Toddorius Rashad Goodwin, 24, and Ashley Jones, 23, both of Atlanta, were arrested in the Trace Ridge subdivision.

All four suspects have been charged with two counts of uttering forged instruments and two counts of conspiracy to commit a crime.

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
