Man charged with trespass, forgery

A city man has been charged with criminal trespass and forgery for cashing two stolen checks, police say.

Jacob Wallace, 44, of no fixed address, was charged with criminal trespass, a class A misdemeanor, after police officers say they found him at a downtown address he had been warned to stay away from.

A class A misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in prison plus fines.

Police detectives later charged Wallace with two counts of forgery, a class B felony after an investigation found that he had cashed two stolen checks at a Nashua bank, police said.

A class B felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison plus fines.

Wallace is currently being held at the Nashua Police Department pending his arraignment in the Nashua District Court.
