MATTOON, Ill. (WCIA) — Two area men face charges of forgery.

29-year old Cody Ackerman and 21-year old Dakota Allen were arrested Monday.

Authorities say both had written multiple checks from closed personal checking accounts for a total of about $1,000, knowing the funds were not available.

Each man was arrested again Thursday morning for reportedly stealing checks from a male victim and writing another $1,000 worth of checks without the victim’s knowledge or consent.
