Police continue their investigation into Rai A. “Sh***y” Goulsby this week, serving search warrant on his car and laptop computer.
Goulsby, 45, was arrested last week on a leading organized crime charge for allegedly directing a check forgery ring.
Goulsby reportedly told police he manufactured checks for others to cash and used the money “to fund a drug habit,” according to court documents.
Goulsby said a computer and printer he used to make the checks were located in his 2010 Chevrolet Malibu.
Spokane County sheriff's Detective Dean Meyer, a member of a federal task force, search the Malibu on Monday with a Secret Service agent and seized the computer and printer, as well as a counterfeit checks, check stocks, file folders, cell phones and marijuana.
Meyer gave the computer to a digital forensic specialist for examination.
Goulsby has 27 felony convictions in Washington, several of which are for crimes of deception, according to search warrants.
A man whose nickname is a profane word faces a charge of leading organized crime for an alleged check forgery ring in Spokane County.
Rai A. “Sh***y” Goulsby, 45, (pictured) is accused of directing two sisters to cash forged payroll checks from McDonald's.
Shakayla Fay Delcambre, 18, and Rayna R. Delcambre, 27, were arrested for forgery March 27 after Walmart employees in Airway Heights called police. The store had been warned after two women cashed similar fraudulent checks at the Shadle Park Walmart.
A Secret Service agent interviewed the suspects in jail, where they said a man named Sh***y “offered her an opportunity to make some money cashing checks, and that the only repercussion, if any, would be damage to her credit score,” according to an affidavit.
Shakayla Delcambre said she was to receive $300 for cashing the checks at the Shadle Park store, and that Sh***y received two-thirds of the cashed check after each transaction.
Goulsby denied providing checks to the sisters but told police he provided self-manufactured checks to other people and used the money “to fund a drug habit,” according to a probable cause affidavit filed Friday.
Goulsby was arrested Thursday and appeared in Superior Court Friday on the leading organized crime charge, which can carry 10 or so years in prison, pending on a defendant's criminal history. He remains in jail on $100,000 bond.
Also arrested in the case was Wendy Y. Kelly, 40, who's accused of cashing a forged check for Goulsby.
