Two accused of forgery

Two Athens men have been charged with forgery for allegedly stealing, forging and cashing a relative’s checks throughout the county.

Limestone County Sheriff’s Investigator Leslie Ramsey arrested Billy Joe Siniard, 32, of 15886 Mooresville Road on 10 counts of second-degree forgery and Bobby Joe Siniard, same age and address, on one count of second-degree forgery on Thursday.

“A man reported to us that he had some checks stolen and he listed (Billy) Siniard as a suspect,” said Investigator Eric King. “He had written checks at several locations around the county.”

Ramsey investigated, obtained arrest warrants for the men and picked them up.

Billy remained in the Limestone County Jail on Friday in lieu of posting a $25,000 bail, and Bobby remained jailed in lieu of posting a $2,500 bail, records show.
