Authorities have accused a man of issuing checks to businesses for payment even though he knowingly had insufficient funds. 

Noah Lookofsky, 41, was charged Feb. 12 with ongoing criminal conduct and March 22 with first-degree theft.

According to online court documents, Lookofsky ordered four different watches from four different jewelers. He sent the jewelers checks in payment for what he owed them, but all of the checks bounced.

Lookofsky reportedly had insufficient funds in his account even before he wrote the checks.

Lookofsky communicated with the jewelers and admitted that he owed them money, but he never returned the watches or gave them their money.

The total value of the watches was $157,825.00.

Ongoing criminal conduct is a Class-B felony. First-degree theft is a Class-C felony.
