Ford, who turned himself in late Tuesday at 201 Poplar, reportedly wrote Las Savell Jewelers two post-dated checks totaiing $5800 for as many Rolex watches last year and, when the checks repeatedly bounced, failed to respond to several requests to make the checks good.

More information will be reported as it becomes available.
