A local man has been arrested for allegedly forging three checks.

Keethan Roland, 20, 3536 Shamrock Place, was charged with three charges of forgery and third-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, between Jan. 28 and Feb. 2, Roland forged three checks and used the victim to cash the checks at ATMs by signing the checks over to the victim.

A fourth ATM deposit was allegedly made using an envelope that held a piece of paper.

According to the complaint, the victim gave Roland a total of $692 in cash. The forged starter checks had false names and account numbers written in the spaces, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, numerous sources of Roland's signature and handwriting evidence say that he forged the checks himself.
