Irvine man charged with 15 counts of possession of forged checks

Another 2012 investigation has resulted in the arrest of an Irvine man accused of passing stolen checks.

Jimmy Puckett, 44, of Irvine, was charged Wednesday with 15 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

A resident in the 100 block Wesley Court reported June 22 that her home had been burglarized and a TV was stolen, according to the RPD.

Although she did not realize at the time, several blank personal checks were taken as well.

The victim learned in July that 19 of the stolen checks had been forged and cashed in Irvine and Richmond. The total amount of the forged checks was $2,044.

A warrant was issued in September for Puckett, and he was arrested Wednesday in the 100 block of Wesley Court.
