              Statesboro police arrested a Savannah woman Wednesday on charges of executing a number of fictitious checks.
        Angel Pierre Knight-German, 28, of Middleground Road in Savannah, is charged with two counts of "printing, executing or negotiating checks or drafts knowing information is fictitious," and three counts of fourth degree forgery, said Statesboro Police Sgt. Jake Saxon.
        Between Jan. 6 and Jan. 25, Knight-German targeted several Statesboro area banks, taking checks she had printed with false information and cashing them, he said.
        At one South Main Street bank, Knight-German cashed a counterfeit check for $974.18. At another time with the same bank, she cashed a counterfeit check for $954.81, using her own account information and Georgia drivers' license to cash the check, according to police incident reports.
        At another bank on Brampton Avenue, Knight-German cashed three fictitious checks, reports stated.
        Statesboro police Detective Kevin Wadley gathered evidence and issued warrants for Knight-German in January, according to reports.
        She was taken into custody Wednesday and taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where she remains without bond and awaits further court action, according to jail records.
