Authorities in more than one county want to know if a Newcastle couple was running a check-scamming operation out of their home.

Noale and Teresa Bates were arrested Saturday for drug possession after a routine traffic stop. Now police are investigating check-scamming operation.

Acting on a tip, authorities got a search warrant and searched the Bates home in this rural area of Newcastle.

Police found numerous weapons and computer-generated checks, authorities said.

Both of the Bates have past felony drug convictions. Teresa Bates has bonded out, but her husband remained in the McClain County jail Thursday.
