Hanover firm fires employee in check forgery

An employee of an electronics firm in Hanover has been fired for allegedly forging a signature on a company check worth more than $9,500 and cashing it.

The alleged forgery occurred July 27, but was not reported to police until Monday. No arrests have been made, and authorities said their investigation is continuing.

A police report says the CEO of Shorrock Electronic System Inc., Kevin J. Robinson, found out in July that the employee fraudulently cashed a check for $9,680.

Mr. Robinson told police the employee admitted that he signed the name of another employee who routinely signs checks for the firm. The report says the employee told Mr. Robinson that he would try to pay the company back.

The report says the employee was fired Oct. 30.
