Police say a 23-year-old Brooklyn Center man used a blank check from a woman's personal checking account to buy four iPads at the Ridgedale Apple Store.
Jeremy Antonio Dalton, aka Jeremy Antonio McGee, faces up to 5 years in prison for a conviction of the charge of posession of stolen checks, a felony.
Back in May, a woman who banked with Wells Fargo discovered she had a negative balance because of a check she didn't write in the amount of $2,142 to Apple at Ridgedale. After reporting it to police, the check was found electronically in the name on Dalton at his address in Brooklyn Center. She told police that she didn't know him.
Police believe they saw Dalton on surveillance tape. When asked, Minnetonka Police say he agreed to a quick money scheme and turned over the iPads to unnamed accomplices for some cash.
Dalton is not currently in custody, but he is being summonsed to court on the charge.
