A Remsen man is facing a felony charge after he allegedly stole checks from his employer and cashed them, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Zachary Williamson, 24, is charged with felony second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

On Aug. 2, deputies responded to an address in the town of Augusta for a reported fraud complaint. An investigation found that Williamson allegedly stole numerous checks from his employer, forged his employer’s name on the checks and then cashed them at several locations in Oneida and Madison counties.

Williamson was arrested Oct. 16 at an address in the town of Remsen and then taken into custody. He’s being held in the Oneida County Jail without bail.

Deputies say the case will be turned over to the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office for grand jury consideration.
