A Johnson City man was arrested Wednesday after he attempted to pass a check and deposit funds into his personal account, according to a police press release.

Police said Michael Longcrier, 33, 3433 McKinley Road, was charged after he allegedly tried to pass a forged check on Nov. 9 and also was using a fake Johnson City Medical Center stamp and a fictitious signature.

Longcrier was charged with forgery over $1,000 and was taken to Washington County Detention Center, where he was being held on $10,000 bond.

He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Sessions Court.
