Stolen Checks Land Molino Felon Back Behind Bars

November 30, 2012

A Molino man recently released from prison is facing multiple felony charges for writing checks that were reported stolen in Santa Rosa County.

Brandon David Edmonson, 32, was charged with three felony counts of dealing in stolen property and three felony counts of uttering a forged instrument. He remains in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $30,000.

The checks were reported October 25 as being stolen during a residential burglary in Santa Rosa County.

Edmonson allegedly wrote three of the checks totaling $725 to a Cedartown Road resident for “driving him around”. The victim cashed the checks at her credit union, took out the amount owed to her for gas, and returned the remainder in cash to Edmonson, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. Three additional checks were made payable to a bar in Milton, and a fourth was made payable to a second individual.

According to Department of Corrections records, Edmonson was released from state prison in April after serving a year and a day for petit theft third conviction.

    Some people just like being in prison even if they deny it.

    Why else would they work so hard to force the judges to put them back in?

    I think the judge is tired of seeing this clown. It’s becoming clear that he does not intend to get straight.
