A Bergen man is in jail in lieu of no bail, facing a slew of forgery charges.
The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office today announced the arrest of 29-year-old Dustin Locicero of Gibson Street after a two-month investigation.
Deputies say in November Locicero stole a large quantity of jewelry, collector coins and personal checks from a South Byron resident. He also allegedly stole personal checks from both a Bergen resident and a Rochester resident.
Deputies say Locicero allegedly sold the valuables worth $7,000 and cashed the checks at three Genesee County banks. He’s charged with seven felony counts of forgery as well as grand larceny.
Locicero also has a pending forgery charge in the City of Batavia from December. Deputies say he allegedly contacted someone involved with that case, violating a temporary order of protection, leading to a criminal contempt charge.
Deputies say they found hiding behind a mobile home in Bergen yesterday when they arrested him. After arraignment in Batavia City Court, Locicero was remanded to the Genesee County Jail with no bail.
