A Norcross man is wanted for attempting to forge checks belonging to two Atlanta Falcons football players.
Gwinnett County police say Corey Dajohn Moody, 29, is wanted on suspicion of forging rent checks belonging to Julio Jones (above left) and former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Christopher Owens (above right).
Moody once worked for the Preserve at Mill Creek, a luxury apartment complex near the Falcons training camp in Buford, GA.
Police say that's where Moody stole the two football players' June rent checks.
According to Gwinnett County police, Moody, pictured left, attempted to deposit Jones’ $1,500 rent check using a Chase Bank smartphone app sometime in January.
He successfully cashed Owens’ $1,243.60 rent payment at a Chase bank branch after changing the check number from “217” to “1217”, according to police reports.
Bank officials caught both forgery attempts and alerted police, according to the AJC. The bank refunded the money back to Owens, who now plays for the Cleveland Browns.
Moody was last arrested in January for a traffic violation and driving under a revoked license.
Jones was also in the news on Tuesday, when a retaining wall fell on a construction worker at Jones's Camp Branch Road home in Gwinnett County. The worker was trapped for over an hour as rescue personnel worked to free him. The man was taken to a local hospital. The extent of his injuries are not known.
In a statement to Channel 2 Action News, the Atlanta Falcons said that Jones, 24, is a private person, but will likely reach out to the victim.
