Man arrested for using checks stolen from 85-year-old man


A 55-year-old man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly used checks that were stolen from an 85-year-old Clifton man.

Derwin Lee Wilkins has been charged with forgery by passing from the elderly and is also facing charges of fraudulent possession of identifying materials by the McLennan County Sheriff's Office.

According to police, the checks were stolen by a woman from the 85-year-old man in Clifton. Wilkins somehow got the checks, and was caught on video using the checks at stores in Waco.

Police say Wilkins purchased numerous items, including clothes.

The tips that helped identify Wilkins came after police posted the video on their Facebook page and it also ran on television.
