Irvine Man Charged With Fraud In Richmond

Police in Richmond say an Irvine man has been charged with fraud after an arrest warrant was served on him when he went to the police station to get a vehicle out of impound. 32-year-old Dennis Wright was charged with theft by deception on Thursday. Police say in November, he gave Autoland on East Main Street a check a little of 2 thousand to cash and take his $400 car payment out of. The check was made out to Wright from Oregon and he said it was a payroll check. The owner cashed the check, took out the car payment then gave Wright the rest. But the check was returned to Autoland as a fake.
