A man was arrested Friday after police responded at 5 p.m. to the Wells Fargo Bank in the 3200 block of Jefferson Street where a man was suspected of trying to cash a $1,900 check from a closed account, according to Napa Police. The account had belonged to a resident in Union City.
Eric Wayne, 36, of Oakland, allegedly tried to cash a $2,460 check at the bank earlier on April 24 and had been turned down, according to police and court records. That account holder said she had lost a box of checks and had not given Wayne a check, according to police and court records.
Wayne was booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of burglary, forgery and on a parole hold, police said. On Tuesday, he was charged in Napa County Superior Court with forgery, second-degree burglaries, attempted grand theft and grand theft, and receiving stolen property with five special allegations in connection with the two incidents, according to court records.
