GREGORY - A Gregory man is accused of cashing checks, worth more than $500, that did not belong to him.

Aaron Legge, 20, was recently accused of two counts of forgery for cashing two checks - one worth $56.11 at Pump 'N Stuff in Burke and the other worth $500 at Gregory Lanes in Gregory - in June 2017.

The checks' owner said he did not sign the checks, nor did he authorize anybody else to sign or cash the checks, according to court documents. He said he believes the checks were stolen by his daughter, and Legge later received possession of them.

Forgery is a Class 5 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count.
