A 26-year old man is facing over 120 charges as a result of an investigation into stolen cheques in Oshawa. The suspect was arrested without incident by the Tactical Services Unit and a K-9 team at a residence on Elmgrove Av. on Wednesday. Police allege that the cheques were obtained over a ten month period, with signatures forged and given to people in the network or to unsuspecting people to deposit, with the accused taking a cut of the cash withdrawn. Some of the rightful owners of the cheques were not aware they had been stolen until they saw the activity on their bank statements. Fraud investigators are reminding the public to always make sure personal cheque books are stored in a safe location.
