— A 51-year-old man wrote and cashed 37 stolen checks for a woman's account and got $4,600 from her account, Raleigh police said Tuesday night when they charged him with nine felonies.

Robert Allen Daniels of 7707 River Field Drive in Raleigh was accused in arrest warrants of forging the checks between June 12 and Aug. 30.

Police arrested him about 9:45 p.m. at a home on Longstreet Drive

The warrants said the checks were all drawn on the woman’s account at the State Employees Credit Union and were cashed at various banks.

Daniels, who told booking officers at the Wake County Detention Center that he works for a painting company, was charged with three counts each of forgery of an instrument, uttering a forged endorsement and obtaining property by false pretense.

Magistrates set Daniel’s bail at $60,000, and he was being held for a court appearance Wednesday.
