A Delaware County Grand Jury has indicted a Columbus man for 12 charges including forgery and receiving stolen property.

Glen Allen Graves, 48, is charged with four counts of possessing criminal tools, fifth-degree felonies; four counts of forgery, fifth-degree felonies; one count of receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony; one count of attempted theft, a first-degree misdemeanor and two counts of theft, a fifth-degree felony one first-degree misdemeanor.

Prosecutors say charges come after law enforcement received a call from a concerned employee at the Huntington National Bank in Westerville on Jan. 28, 2017.

“The call came when two credit cards came back as invalid after Graves attempted to use them for cash advances,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien. “Further investigation showed the cards to be fraudulent.”
