Columbia police arrested a Tennessee man following an attempted forgery incident at Simmons Bank, 180 Admiral Trost Drive in Columbia, about 12:20 p.m. Monday. A vehicle wanted in connection with the incident remains at large.
Police said that the man, Caleb Busby, entered the bank and attempted to cash a fraudulent check in the amount of $1,000. He left the bank unsuccessfully and was detained short distance from the bank. Court information also states that Busby attempted to deliver a forged check in the amount of $251 at FCB Bank in Columbia.
Court information alleges that Busby was also in possession of a forged check in the amount of $2,700.

The vehicle was also believed to be wanted as part of a theft that occurred in Dupo.
