A Bulger man was jailed Saturday on forgery and theft charges after Cecil Township police said he illegally cashed checks from the bank account of his former employer.
Cecil Township police charged Scott Gill, 22, with 13 counts of forgery and one count of theft of moveable property after the owners of 1 All Pro Roofing called to report that checks from the business had allegedly been taken, forged and cashed.
A criminal complaint indicates that police were first notified of an alleged forgery on Sept. 27, when a local store called the business owner, Vince Kroesen of South Depoali Road, to let him know that someone was attempting to cash checks from his business account in the amount of $485.
Kroesen declined to have the checks cashed and had the account frozen, only to realize on Oct. 4 that 11 other checks made out to Gill and allegedly forged by the man had been cashed in the amount of $4,101 over the summer, police said.
Court dockets show charges were filed against Gill on Oct. 9, and that he was picked up by North Fayette Township Police Department on the warrant Friday and transported to the Cecil Township Police Department.
Scott was video arraigned before district Judge Mark Wilson early Saturday, and was remanded to the Washington County Jail after the man was unable to post a $25,000 bond.
His preliminary hearing has been set for 10 a.m. Oct. 30 before Wilson, online records show.
