Pineville man charged with six counts of forgery

Brian Peel, 22, 61 Purser St., Pineville, was arrested today for allegedly writing six checks on his ex-wife’s closed bank account, according to the Alexandria Police Department.

Peel is accused of writing checks totaling $1,100 on a closed account at Peoples State Bank.

The arrest came after the ex-wife received a letter from the Rapides Parish District Attorney’s Office indicating a warrant had been issued for her arrest due to forgery. The woman claimed she didn’t write the checks. She told officers the handwriting on the checks looked like that of her ex-husband. The couple file for divorce in May 2008. The checks were written in December 2008.

Officers asked the ex-wife to provide writing samples for a comparison to the writing on the checks.
