Fort Carson Soldier Arrested for Alleged Check Cashing Scheme

An active-duty Fort Carson soldier is under arrest for an alleged check-cashing scheme. 

Fountain Police say Christian Johnson is facing a number of charges, including money laundering, forgery, criminal impersonation and fraud. 

Investigators say Johnson used social media to entice people into cashing checks for him, allowing them to keep some of the money. 

However, the checks were phony and did not clear the bank, forcing the victims to bear the cost of bounced checks.
