Hawaii County police have charged a Hilo man with 19 offenses in connection with stolen and forged checks belonging to a former employer.
Patrick John Lindsey, 24, is expected to appear in court this week to face nine counts of theft, eight counts of forgery and two counts of ID theft.
Lindsey is accused of cashing checks made out to himself that were reported stolen from a 26-year-old Hilo man.
His bail was set at $160,000. He was charged on Friday.
Police arrested Lindsey Wednesday at Hawaii Community Correctional Center, where he is being held on unrelated charges.
