If you're going to buy something with a forged cashier's check, don't misspell "cashier's" or use an FBI office as your shipping address. Monroe police said they arrested 44-year-old man after he did both. He was held Friday on two counts of forgery and as a fugitive from justice in Georgia, where he is accused of a similar scheme.The FBI called police Thursday after a Minnesota cell phone distributor called the bureau.

The company had sent 50 phones to 300 Washington Street in Monroe, only to discover its $2,359.45 payment was a "cahier's check".

FBI agents saw the suspect wave down a delivery truck driver outside the bureau later Thursday, stopped the transaction and waited for police.
