ANTWERP — A Gouverneur man was arrested by state police Tuesday afternoon on two charges that he stole checks from a relative and used them to steal nearly $100.

Robert J. Gotham, 26, of 111 Canton St., was arrested at the state police barracks in Alexandria and charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a class D felony, and petit larceny.

Police allege that Mr. Gotham stole the checks and signed them without permission Jan. 23. Police did not reveal the identity of the relative.

He was arraigned in Alexandria Town Court and released pending a court appearance in Antwerp Village Court.
