A Tucson man has been convicted of fraud schemes and theft after he wrote multiple checks that bounced, according to a news release from the Pima County Attorney's Office.
Authorities say on December 14 a jury convicted John Bergen of Fraud Schemes and Artifices and Theft.
The attorney's office says in September of 2014, Bergen wrote six checks to four separate Tucson businesses from a closed account.
Authorities say the amount totaled more than $13K and was used to purchase car parts and labor.
All of the checks bounced and the vendors never received payment.
Bergen was convicted in absentia and a Superior Court judge issued a warrant for his arrest.
