A Steuben County man is facing a slew of charges after stealing and forging checks – in addition to selling another person’s vehicle without their consent.
Terence Vang, 56, is facing multiple charges including criminal possession of a forged instrument, forgery, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. Additional charges are said to be pending.
State Police say an investigation into Vang started in January, when a property owner came to troopers to report stolen personal checks. The victim said his signature had been forged on checks totaling nearly $1,500. He reportedly said he suspected Vang, a handyman who worked on his rental properties.
Troopers say their investigation determined Vang not only forged the checks, but that he also used an unauthorized credit card belonging to a former employee to buy more than $700 in food and drinks.
