LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a man was arrested after being involved in the theft of hundreds of dollars from his own grandmother.

According to an arrest report, the woman's bank sent her copies of three forged checks that had been written out for a total of $490.

Those charges caused an additional $90 in overdraft fees to be withdrawn from the woman's account, making the total loss to the victim $580.

Police say 22-year-old Cody Cahill, the woman's grandson, was complicit to the forged checks, along with an accomplice.

Police say a witness told them that, during the time the thefts were taking place, he asked Cahill how he was paying for heroin, and Cahill told him, "Well, lately we've been cashing my grandma's checks."

Cahill is charged with one count of complicity to theft by unlawful taking, according to the arrest report.
