Bank fraud is a federal crime. That means that, if the bank reports it, they will report you to the federal authorities in their local office (in their state), because that's where the alleged crime occurred. The information could be relayed to federal authorities in your state, and they may or may not choose to pick you up. If the amount of the check is low, they may instead choose to send you a letter with a court date rather than having you arrested.
