(LINTON) - 22-year-old Joshua Marsh is wanted on a warrant for allegedly cashing a $800 check at the drive through at Main Source Bank in Linton on Jan. 9th.

The counter check was signed by Hershel Wyrick III and paid to the order of Marsh. Bank officials determined the account had been closed in December 2006.

Police contacted Wyrick, who lives in Columbus and confirmed the check did have his signature, but he had given the check to his sister-in-law Karen Marsh years ago. For food and miscellaneous items.

Wyrick says Karen never used the check. Karen told police she had put the check in her safe and had forgot about it.

Joshua was interviewed by police and he admitted to taking the check without permission from his mother's home in early January when he was there cleaning while she was in the hospital he told police he figured the account had been closed but needed the money for his kids and thought just maybe the check would go through.

Marsh is being charged with theft., a Class D felony.
