NASHUA – Police arrested two men last week and accused them of running a check cashing scheme that defrauded banks out of thousands of dollars.

Police were contacted by employees at TD Bank on Oct. 24, 2012, and told that a number of accounts had been opened and used to deposit fraudulent checks. The suspects had been able to deposit the phony checks and then withdraw the money from the accounts before the bank identified them as fraudulent, police said.

Detectives investigated and on Thursday arrested Robert Bates, 29, of no fixed address, and Jason Burns, 24, of 29 Temple St., Nashua. They were both charged with theft by deception, a Class A felony, and are accused of defrauding the bank of over $2,000, police said.

Bates was held without bail at the Rockingham County jail in Brentwood where he is being held on a separate charge. Burns was held at Valley Street jail in Manchester on $5,000 cash or surety bail. Both were scheduled to be arraigned at Nashua district court on Friday, police said.

The Class A felony charges are punishable by up to 15 years in prison plus fines, police said.
