CHICO, Calif. - A grand theft suspect is wanted by Butte County deputies after they say the man cashed a forged check stolen from a Chico business.

The business contacted the sheriff's office earlier in the month to say the check they were expecting was a payment of $19,633.80 but the check was stolen, according to officials.

During the investigation, officials say they learned the stolen check information was used to forge and cash a check in the amount of $9,633.80.

Surveillance video from the bank shows a photo of the man who they believe to be Jacob McDaniel.

With an arrest warrant in hand, officials are asking for help in locating McDaniel, who they believe is a transient in the Chico area.

McDaniel faces charges of felony grand theft and forgery.
