Fayetteville man arrested for forging grandfather's checks

Posted August 18

— A 21-year-old Fayetteville man surrendered to authorities Monday for allegedly forging his grandfather’s checks.

Jaquan Tyrell Daniel, of 1506 McArthur Road, faces five counts each of obtaining property by false pretense and forgery.

Daniel is accused of stealing at least six of his grandfather’s checks and cashing them for a total of $445, authorities said. The victim learned about the checks after checking his bank statements, authorities said.

Daniel was released from the Cumberland County jail under a $100,000 bond. His first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.

    This 21 year should have had a job, then he would not have had to steal from his granddaddy. He should be ashamed of himself. But it goes back to how the parents raise him. He should not have been released out on bond. I guess the parents are once again covering for him. Let him make his mistakes and learn from them, parents. You cannot cover for every wrong doing he does. He is 21. Not 12. Its too late for you to do anything. Now the courts and the law will take care of him since you did not.

    It doesn't get much sorrier than stealing from your own grandfather.

    That's just really low. Hope he gets a serious punishment.....something that will make an impression, if that's possible.

    "There are young black men that commit crime," the president said. "We can argue about why that happens — because of the poverty they were born into and the lack of opportunity or school systems that fail them or what have you"

    How low does a person have to be to rob their own relatives?
