A man charged with ripping off his own mother’s bank account for almost $17,000 faces multiple grand theft and forgery charges.
The suspect, Davis L. Cantrell, 21, will face preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on eight counts of felony theft and eight counts of forgery.
His charges come after police say he passed at least eight checks from his mother’s account at Security Federal.
“He did forge her signature to the check before passing it without her consent,” said McMinnville police investigator Stuart Whitman on the warrants against Cantrell.
The illegal withdrawals, made from his mother’s account at Security Federal, happened for several months. The warrants range from March to June and detail amounts ranging from $1,000 to $2,700.
The charges are twofold. Not only is Cantrell in trouble for forging his mother’s signature to get the money, but also for his stealing the money from the bank through forgery.
