Online records show Mika Dajour Hearne, 29, of Bremond was ordered held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
Hearne presented the forged check for $262,523.45 to a local realtor to “purchase real estate in Harker Heights, Texas,” an arrest warrant affidavit says.
The realtor suspected the check was fake and a First National Bank official “verified it was not authentic,” the affidavit said.
Hearne later “admitted the check was forged,” the affidavit says.
