Jeffery J. Pyrcioch, 19, of West Lafayette, Ind. thought he had come up with the perfect crime. Buying goods, then signing checks as payment with disappearing ink. There were only two problems with his scheme. He neglected to take into account the name printed at the top of each check was his name, complete with his current address. He also didn't realize that the Indiana State Police Laboratory had the ability to recover anything written with the invisible ink. He and his girlfriend, Heather M. Green, allegedly went on a shopping spree, passing bad checks worth over $2,000 at five separate merchants who then watched as the amount and signature on the checks vanished before their eyes. The police were called to investigate, and had little trouble finding their prime suspects, as they had graciously provided their address on each occasion. The couple is now facing a possible eight year prison term for fraud and theft, should they be convicted of the crime. -- Originally posted to the High Weirdness Mailing List in June.
