Police arrested a Cedar Rapids man for allegedly stealing two cars by writing bad checks to pay for them.

James Horn, 56, was charged with two counts of first-degree theft.

According to police records, Horn wrote a check worth more than $60,000 to a dealership on March 20 for a new Mercedes-Benz and warranty items. The dealership accepted the check and Horn took the car, officers said.

But the dealer later found out that Horn’s checking account had been closed before the purchase.

Horn allegedly attempted to sell the vehicle to an out-of-town car dealership.
