Crime blotter: making hay
On November 14, at approximately 3 p.m., Glenn Wayne Oltman entered an Unbank location in downtown Minneapolis. According to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court, Oltman attempted to cash a $7800 check drawn from an account at Delaware Federal Credit Union. He told the Unbank employee handling the transaction that he'd received the money for selling hay. The check, however, turned out to be counterfeit. When the police arrived Oltman allegedly confessed that he'd received the check via email and that he was to receive 10 percent of the proceeds in return for cashing it. The 42-year-old Wadena resident has been charged with one count of offering a forged check.
