Police: Man Attempts To Cash $360 Billion Check KXAS-TV
FORT WORTH, Texas - Fort Worth police arrested a Crowley man accused of trying to cash a stolen check for billions of dollars. Police said Charles Ray Fuller, 21, tried to cash the check at a Chase Bank, but the teller did a double take after noticing the check was for $360 billion.
The check was made out to "Fulla Comp and Entertainment," the record company Fuller wanted to start, NBC 5 reported.
Police said Fuller stole the check from Paula Prettyman, the mother of Fuller's girlfriend, Andrea Greer.
"I wouldn't picture him doing something that stupid, I mean, hurting me and my family," Greer said.
Greer and her family said they don't know what Fuller was thinking.
"I didn't think he'd do this, something this dumb. I think it shocked everybody that knew him," Greer said.
Her grandmother Sharon Laird agreed.
"I said, 'Do what? Is he crazy? We were just in awe," she said.
Laird said if her family had $360 billion, "I wouldn't be sitting here. I'd be somewhere drinking margaritas. It's five o'clock somewhere, sometime."
Authorities said Fuller also had a gun and marijuana in his possession at the time of his arrest.
Fuller told NBC 5 police caught him with a gun and a small amount of marijuana, but he denied trying to cash the $360 billion check.
