A Morgan City man was arrested Monday afternoon on a warrant for 8 counts of forgery.

A St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputy transported 41-year-old Myron Hatch from the St. Bernard Parish jail to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center on the charges.

A complaint of stolen checks in June prompted the investigation into Hatch's activities.

The deputy alleges that Hatch forged check, and then he cashed them at several different businesses.
