MOUNT EPHRAIM, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey tax preparer who allegedly stole thousands of dollars by signing a client’s name on three refund checks has been indicted on theft and forgery counts.

Camden County prosecutors say Marc Mecca will be arraigned Monday.

The 54-year-old Mount Ephraim man allegedly forged a Sea Isle City man’s name on three checks and deposited $9,467 into his own account in June 2013.

Authorities began their investigation after the victim said he never received his federal income tax refund for three straight years. The charges were filed in June, and a Camden County grand jury indicted Mecca in September on three counts of forgery and one count of theft.

A telephone number for Mecca could not be located Saturday. It wasn’t known if he’s retained a lawyer.
