PARIS, TX - After a lengthy investigation for several forged check cases, Paris Police have arrested two men responsible.

32-year old Dante Jimerson of Paris and 19-year old Danny Rochon of Dallas, were arrested yesterday after police caught them in the act.

For months investigators have been searching for the ring known as the "Hyphen Check Ring Gang" for numerous cases of forgery throughout Texas and several other states.

Paris investigators set up surveillance at local banks and were advised yesterday that forged checks had been cashed at a Paris bank.

Officers made contact with the men at a gas station in the 2600 block of Lamar Avenue. Upon searching the vehicle they found business checks and money from the recent forgery transaction.

The incident is still under investigation.
