On October 7, 2019 at approximately 1:20 p.m., New York State Police at Homer arrested Christian A. Reynolds, age 22 of Moravia, NY for two counts of the felony of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument in the first degree. 

Troopers received a complaint in March 2019 alleging that Reynolds gave a victim checks to deposit; the victim then gave Reynolds the cash for the check amounts.  The victim told troopers that the bank where the checks were cashed, advised that the checks were not valid.  The bank told the victim that the victim would be ordered to repay the bank.  After an investigation, Reynolds was arrested.  He appeared with his attorney at the Homer State Police barracks on October 7, 2019 where he was processed.  Reynolds was arraigned in the town of Cortlandville court where he was released on his own recognizance and told to reappear on November 18, 2019.
