A Livingston County man is accused of cashing checks in the name of a local Marine currently serving in Italy.

Paul Nahalka, 26, is facing several charges including identity theft and forgery. Police say he cashed three checks at Nunda Napa Auto Parts where he works.

Investigators say Nahalka knew the marine he stole the checks from. They say the two met when they were both stationed together in North Carolina. We're told Nahalka was then honorably discharged and returned to New York.

He's being held on $50,000 bail. He also has charges pending in Steuben County.
