A Yucca Valley man was arrested Wednesday, accused of knowingly passing a bad check. According to a Sheriff’s report, Timothy Dennis, 38, went to a used car dealer in the 55100 block of 29 Palms Highway February 4 to buy a car. Dennis agreed to a down payment of $3500 for the car, using a credit card for $700 and a personal check for $2800. Dennis asked the car dealer to hold the check until February 27 when he would receive his tax refund. The dealer called Dennis on February 28 to make sure there was enough money in his account to cover the check, and when Dennis said there was, the dealer cashed it. The dealership was later notified by the bank that the check was returned for insufficient funds, and the dealership notified the Sheriff’s Department. The deputy confirmed with Dennis that he knew he didn’t have enough money in the account to cover the check; Dennis said he wanted to keep the car so his family could go home. After an investigation, Timothy Dennis was arrested on suspicion of felony check fraud, booked into the Morongo Basin Jail, with his bail set at $50,000.
