A local man has been accused of forging a check.

Christopher Strickland, 29, was charged Sunday with forgery and third-degree theft.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, the defendant entered Fast Cash, 805 S. First Ave., and presented a check that appeared to be from Kelly Services for the amount of $642.36.

The clerk identified the defendant with his Iowa ID card, which he made a copy of. The clerk then gave the defendant $629.51 in cash.

The check was later returned to Fast Cash by the bank stating that it was a fake. Police spoke with Kelly Services and presented tit with the check.

Kelly Services noted that the check looked nothing like the checks it distributes. It had a Cedar Rapids address — Kelly Services checks come from Michigan. The check also stated that its bank was US Bank, and Kelly Services does not use US Bank.

Kelly Services also said the defendant had not been employed with the company since 2010.

The defendant was later charged for driving while license revoked on Sept. 5.

Forgery is a Class-D felony. Third-degree theft is an aggravated misdemeanor. Driving while license revoked is a serious misdemeanor.
