Deputies: Montour Falls duo cashed forged checks at local bank

The Schuyler County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of two Montour Falls residents after an investigation into forged checks.

Joshua Sheffer, 29, and Ricardo Castellar, 30, both were charged with felony possession of a forged instrument.




The charges stem from separate forged checks that were cashed at the Chemung Canal Trust Company bank in the village of Montour Falls.

They were arraigned last week and will answer the charges at a later date.
