MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Three people were indicted last Thursday in federal court for allegedly using counterfeit checks at multiple Target locations to purchase an amount of items totaling more than $12,000, according to court documents.

The three people were indicted through two separate but related indictments. In the first, 21-year-old Ci’Preaunni Ja’Von Stewart and Ryan Lamarr Chambers face 19 counts of bank fraud. The second indictment charged 38-year-old Jamee Leah Spillman with 15 counts of bank fraud.

If convicted, each person faces a potential penalty of up to 30 years in prison for each count.

According to the indictments, the three devised a scheme to pass off counterfeit checks to purchase merchandise. And since the three said their checks were traveler’s checks, their counterfeit nature was not found for several days. The value of merchandise the three purchased totaled more than $12,375.

The three passed counterfeit checks in Target stores located in Buffalo, Burnsville, Cottage Grove, Edina, Medina, Minneapolis, Minnetonka, Oakdale, St. Cloud, Vadnais Heights, and Woodbury. None of the three have a known address.
