One person has been charged and city of Cleveland Police are searching for a second suspect who allegedly forged checks on a business which was possibly destroyed during April 2011 tornadoes.

Detective Matt Jenkins of Cleveland Police Department’s Criminal Investigations said Erin Langley, 31, was charged and officials are searching for Travis Davis, 35, who is also wanted for reportedly cashing checks drawn on a business which was located on Blue Springs Lane.

Lt. Robert Harbison had filed a report after being notified checks from L&G Farms Trucking had been cashed at local convenience stores.

The checks totaled more than $900.

Langley was charged with attempted forgery and a warrant has been issued for Davis’ arrest.

The warrant for Davis is for forgery, theft over $500 and criminal conspiracy.

According to Jenkins, during his investigation, he couldn’t find the physical business at the address on the check.

“It was supposed to be in the area which was heavily damaged during the tornadoes and could have been destroyed. We are asking for anyone knowing the owners of this business to also come forward,” Jenkins said.

According to Jenkins, Davis’last known address was on Keith Valley Road.

Anyone having information regarding L&G Farms Trucking or Davis’ whereabouts is asked to contact him at 303-3134.

n Bradley County deputy Travis Greene responded to Blairs Bend Road and filed a report for Gina Blackburn.

Blackburn told the deputy she had left her wallet and purse inside her car after she arrived home from work.

When she got in the car the next morning, the items were missing.

According to the report, the purse and contents were valued at $60.

Investigation is continuing.
