DAYTON — A man is in custody after cashing a stolen check and attempting to flee from police, according to a Dayton police report.
Eric L. Gist Jr. was detained on suspicion of criminal damaging, passing bad checks, receiving stolen property, obstructing official business and resisting arrest.
Officers responded to a West Third Street Fifth Third Bank around 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to the report.
Gist was reportedly inquiring why his account was frozen when a bank employee contacted police about the stolen checks.

Gist cashed a stolen check at a Miamisburg branch on Aug. 6, read the report.
The personal check was reportedly made out to Gist and endorsed by him on the back.
He then made an ATM withdraw from that deposit, read the report.
