A local man has been accused of depositing two fictitious checks that totaled almost $4,000.

Jordan Young, 22, was charged June 28, 2012, with two charges of second-degree theft, two charges of identity theft, and two charges of forgery.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Young deposited a check for $1,971.44 at U.S. Bank on June 28, 2012. Young then proceeded to deposit another check of $1,992.11 about an hour later at a different US Bank.

Both fictitious checks were made out to Young, and he presented an Iowa identification card to cash them.

Young was identified through his identification-card photo and surveillance photos from the bank, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, both checks were written on a real account to real account holders. The account holders told officials that they did not write the checks and are in possession of the originals.

Second-degree theft, identity theft, and forgery are Class-D felonies.
