DOBSON — A Dobson teen found himself in jail — under a $50,000 bond — after being arrested on charges of forging checks at several places around town.
The Surry County Sheriff’s Department said it had served arrest warrants for the Dobson Police Department on Hunter Weston Nunn, 17, of Mount Royal Lane, on April 11.
The arrest report lists 28 counts against Nunn, listed as a student of both Surry Central High School and Surry Community College.
Dobson Police said Nunn allegedly stole a checkbook from a relative and went on a shopping spree worth several thousands of dollars. Each check that was signed constitutes a separate charge of forgery, the department said.
Nunn is charged with 10 counts of forgery, 10 counts of felony possession of stolen goods, seven counts of obtaining property by false pretense, and one count of forgery uttering.
Nunn was placed under a $50,000 unsecured bond with a court date of June 27.
