Arkansas City Police say a man got a case of the nerves while trying to cash a stolen check. It happened at the Union State Bank this past Saturday.

Witnesses say Justin Lester fled the scene in a pickup while employees were checking the validity of the check. Bank employees gave police a good description of the truck and its license plate number, and it was located near 8th and Skyline a few minutes later. 

Lester was arrested and was charged with forgery, making false information and possession of stolen property.
