NORTHWOOD, Iowa – A Minnesota man is sentenced for forging checks in North Iowa.
Brandon Lee Crews, 30 of Emmons, MN, has pleaded guilty to one count of forgery and a charge of second-degree theft has been dismissed as part of a plea deal.
Crews was accused of stealing 10 checks from someone in Worth County and then cashing them in Albert Lea for a total of $4,067. Investigators say the signature on the checks was “not even close” to accurate.
Crews has been sentenced to time served and a fine of $855 has been suspended.
