BATON ROUGE - Federal authorities have indicted three women they say tried to cash over $77,000 in counterfeit checks in Baton Rouge.

They are alleged to have flown in from Florida and Michigan in March to cash the checks at two liquor stores, two convenience stores and a payday loan business.

Assistant U.S. attorney Rene Salomon says each check was written in the amount of either $7,613 or $7,856.

Ashockie Lorissa Gambles, of Orlando, Florida; Chynna Chanae Lacrell Pitts, of the Detroit area; and Malissa Monay Lana Farrell, of Romulus, Michigan are accused of bank fraud and passing counterfeit securities.

The U.S. Attorney's office says the case is still under investigation.
