Police say Dawn Fox, 59, of Redford, Donald Coletta, 25, of Westland and Marisa Fecteau, 24, of Garden City created counterfeit inmate fund’s checks. They’ve been charged with uttering and publishing and false pretenses according to police.
Within seven days, 11 counterfeit checks were used within Mt. Clemens, Clinton Township, Shelby Township and Troy.

The checks varied in amounts from $300-$725 and were dated for July 3, 5 and 7 and were made out to people who weren’t inmates at the Macomb County Jail according to police.
