OGDEN -- A 29-year-old Logan man was arrested in Ogden on Saturday after police say he attempted to cash a fraudulent check and was caught with several stolen identification cards.

Jessie Jensen was booked into Weber County Jail on suspicion of seven counts of unlawful use or possession of a credit card, two counts of possession of forged writings, two counts of forgery, two counts of possession of stolen property, and giving false information to a police officer.

Ogden Lt. Tony Fox said police were called to a check- cashing business near 30th Street and Washington Boulevard on Saturday because Jensen was attempting to cash a fraudulent check. When police arrived, he told them he had tried to cash the check the day before in Layton, but was unsuccessful.

Initially, Jensen gave the officers an incorrect name, which led to the false information to an officer charge. When officers searched Jensen, he had several stolen identification cards with him, including a Social Security card and a military ID.

"He had a little bit of everything," Fox said.

There were three warrants out for Jensen's arrest when he was taken into custody Saturday.
