— 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.
