Hanover Township police have arrested a Wilkes-Barre man after he allegedly cashed a fraudulent check worth more than $10,000.


George Peter Moses, 33, was arraigned this morning before District Judge Joseph Halesey on charges of forgery, theft and receiving stolen property.


According to police, Moses, of South Main Street, presented the bogus $10,100 check on June 5 at United Check Cashing in Hanover Township.


Moses was released on $5,000 unsecured bail, with a preliminary hearing set for July 29.


Moses has been charged with similar offenses several times, according to court documents, all involving checks he claimed had been issued by an uncle.


• On April 5, 2013, police said, Moses cashed a fraudulent $1,600 check at a check cashing business in Edwardsville.


• On June 27, 2013, police said, Moses cashed a fraudulent $600 check at a check cashing business in Wilkes-Barre Township.


• On Aug. 21, police said, Moses opened an account at Corner Post Federal Credit Union using a $950 check. When a stop-payment order was placed on the check, bank officials learned the relative did not issue the document.


Records indicated that court proceedings are still pending in those cases.
