MERIDEN — A Hartford man faces charges after police said he tried to cash a forged check from Logan Steel for $1,800.

Jeffrey Milner, 27, of 213 Hillside Ave., Hartford, was charged Tuesday with second-degree forgery, criminal attempt to commit fourth-degree larceny and possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana. 

On Tuesday, an Ion bank manager reported a man, later identified as Milner, tried to cash a check for $1,826 from Logan Steel, according to a police report. A teller noticed the check appeared to be typed and not computer-generated. The bank manager contacted Logan Steel and learned the check number was sent to a Wallingford paint store.

Police took Milner into custody at the bank and found him in possession of marijuana when he was booked. He was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday. Bond was set at $500 and he is due back in court on Feb. 20.
