Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputies say two Cortland men are being charged in connection with an attempted fraud at the Chemung Canal Trust branch in Cortlandville.

Clerks reported a suspicious looking check that appeared to have been altered and called authorities who arrested 26 year old Charles Street and 28 year old Bayshawn Barlow as they attempted to leave the drive-through.

Investigators say they found the pair had been to the same bank branch on two other occasions and cashed altered checks.

Lunsford and Barlow are each charged with two felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, two misdemeanor counts of conspiracy and one misdemeanor count of petit larceny.
