HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Two men were arrested after allegedly attempting to cash more than $70,000 in fraudulent checks at Redstone FCU.

Jeremy Hudson and David Brown, both 26, were arrested at LaQuinta Inn on University Drive in Huntsville on Nov. 15. They were found in possession of a 2007 Mercedes SUV that reportedly was stolen in Nashville, as well as documents pertaining to a case that has been under investigation for more than a year.

Both men are from the Chicago area, investigators said, and believed to be affiliated with a gang called “Gangster Disciples.”

Redstone detected fraudulent activity on member accounts about a year ago and notified authorities immediately, said police.

Brown and Hudson reportedly attempted to cash approximately $71,000 in checks at the credit union in November.
