Potter County Collecting On Hot Check Writers

Thirty eight thousand dollars has been recovered by Potter County. 

This comes after Tuesday's county wide search for people who have written bad checks to local merchants. Officials say people were arrested at their homes and jobs, but many turned themselves in to clear the fines.

They say investigators are still serving warrants, so they encourage anyone with outstanding warrants come in and pay their fine or make payment arrangements.

The county estimates more than a million dollars in bad checks were written in 2007.
