A Shelbyville man is in custody after he purchased a car with a stolen check,  police said.

James M. Hinkle, 22, of High Street was arrested and charged with felony theft (over $300) and first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, which was a stolen check.

The police report says that on March 31 Hinkle purchased a 2005 Chevy Impala at Cars of Shelbyville, located on Midland Trail.

The report says that Hinkle later admitted to Shelbyville Police Officer Susan Marcum that he knew the check was stolen when he used it to buy the car.
