TOWN OF AUGUSTA — A 24-year-old Remsen man is accused of forging checks he stole from his boss.

Sheriff’s deputies said Zachary M. Williamson stole numerous checks from his employer, forged his employer’s name on the checks and cashed them at several locations in Oneida and Madison counties this summer.

Following an investigation, Williamson was taken into custody on Tuesday. Deputies said he is charged with one count of second-degree possession of a forged instrument, a class D felony. He was arraigned in court and was sent to county jail without bail.

Williamson is scheduled to reappear in court.
