Man charged with taking $20,000 by allegedly forging checks


Prosecutors on Wednesday charged a 36-year-old man with no local address with multiple crimes for forging checks belonging to a 57-year-old woman. 

Police said Brian Paisley allegedly used the woman’s confidential information to forge personal checks and stole more than $20,000. 

He fled the country after allegedly committing the crimes from Nov. 21 to Dec. 3, but later returned, police said. 

Police arrested Paisley Tuesday at the main police station on suspicion of three counts of second-degree forgery, one count of first-degree identity theft, one count of first-degree theft and unauthorized possession of personal, confidential information. 

Paisley was charged Wednesday night. His bail was set at $150,000.
