Zaleta also is accused of stealing from a local area businessman and immediately pawning the stolen items at US Money Shops, West said. He is wanted for four counts of forgery, one count of theft over $500 and once count of theft under $500.

In a separate case, Travis Davis was arrested today on charges of forgery, theft over $500 and criminal conspiracy. He is accused of using checks belonging to L&G Farms Trucking at several area businesses, West said.
