DURHAM -- A deputy with the Durham County Sheriff's Office was on administrative leave this week after police accused him of depositing a counterfeit check from a fake bank account into an account at the State Employees Credit Union.

A Durham police investigator charged Eric Evans, 47, of 338 Weeping Willow Drive with obtaining property by false pretense.

Evans is accused of depositing a faked $90,000 check March 13 into an account at the State Employees Credit Union, then withdrawing a large amount of money, said police spokeswoman Kammie Michael. On March 17, the SECU discovered that the check, drawn on a bank in New York, was counterfeit, Michael said.

Evans remains on paid leave while an internal investigation at the Sheriff's Office is pending, Capt. Ricky Buchanan said.
