JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro man, already in jail for allegedly stealing and cashing checks, faces even more charges after police were able to connect him to additional forgery cases.

Court documents state surveillance video from a Jonesboro bank shows Larry D. Fowler, 62, cashing checks he stole from a woman's mailbox.

The woman contacted the Jonesboro Police Department March 13 about a forged check. The check, initially made out to an IT company in Memphis, was intercepted and altered by Fowler.

Fowler altered the check to appear as if he were the recipient. He cashed it in for $1,855.

"A second check was also stolen and altered to make payable to Larry D. Fowler for $2,300.11," a probable cause affidavit states.

The checks were cashed at two different Bear State Bank locations in Jonesboro on Feb. 16.

Police say Fowler's driver's license number was written on the back of the check, and security video showed him cashing the checks.

Fowler, who appeared in Craighead County District Court last week on forgery charges for the same activity, now faces two additional felony forgery charges.

Judge David Boling set his bond at $10,000. He will appear in court again on April 20.

If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each count.
