JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A man accused of internet stalking of a child and drug charges is also accused of forging checks from his former employer, Jonesboro police said Wednesday. 

Joshua Dunn was arrested March 29 on suspicion of two counts of 2nd-degree forgery after an investigation by Jonesboro police.

According to a probable cause affidavit in the case, Dunn's former employer told police March 22 that fraudulent checks had been cashed at two FoodSmart locations and 1st National Bank. 

Police later interviewed Dunn about the case. 

"Joshua Dunn stated that he was in desperate need of money so he printed off fake checks and cashed them at the FoodSmart on Nettleton and FoodSmart on Gee Street," the affidavit noted. 

Police were able to get surveillance video from both stores, which reportedly showed Dunn passing the forged checks. Also, Dunn's signature reportedly matched the signature that was found on a statement of rights form that he signed before giving a statement to police. 

A $2,500 cash/surety bond was set for Dunn, who will be arraigned May 25 in circuit court in Jonesboro.
