The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office charged a man on Feb. 8, alleging that he forged $13,600 in checks using a relative’s name.

Dale Grimm, 50, Middle Amana, Iowa, was charged with first-degree theft and forgery after allegedly cashing four separate checks last year using a relative’s name who resided in a nursing home.

According to police, Grimm removed four personal checks from his uncle’s residence at Rose Haven nursing home, located in Marengo, Iowa.

In a period from Oct. 16 to Nov. 22, 2009, Grimm allegedly wrote four separate checks in his uncle’s name totaling $13,600.

Bank surveillance video reportedly shows Grimm cashing the checks.

First-degree theft is a Class C felony generally punishable by up to 10 years in prison and carrying a maximum fine of $10,000.
