Former motel manager charged with forging check
ONEONTA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A former motel manager is now facing charges after cashing a forged check in Oneonta last summer. 24-year-old Kyle Jay VanDewerker, who is the former manager of the Amber Life Inn Motel in Colleirsville, cashed a $600 check from the business. The motel's owner contacted authorities this past fall to report an unrelated crime and discovered this incident while auditing his books. A warrant of arrest was obtained for VanDewerker from the Oneonta City Court. He surrendered himself last Thursday. If convicted, VanDewerker faces up to seven years in prison.
