IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Police say an Iowa City man forged checks that had been stolen from a local church.

Police tell the Iowa City Press-Citizen (https://icp-c.com/1uBY79y ) that 24-year-old Jerrell Clemons twice cashed fraudulent checks at a credit union bank inside a grocery store. Police say Clemons forged signatures to write checks to himself in September for $645 and $350.

Clemons has been charged with forgery, a felony, and third-degree theft, a misdemeanor.
