A Salem-area teenager was granted probation for committing a number of theft and forgery offenses, most involving a relative.
Nathan D. Winn, 19, of Whinnery Road, was found to be drug dependent and sentenced to five years probation/treatment program after pleading guilty to multiple charges of theft, forgery and misuse of a credit card.
Winn stole and forged eight checks from the account of Robyn Winn during April and May 2009 and used her stolen credit card in July 2009. He was also accused of stealing more than $500 in goods from a Wal-Mart store and stealing towing services from Sinsley Towing, with these crimes also occurring about the same time as the others.
As part of his probation/treatment program, Winn was ordered to make restitution in the amount of $1,713 and given mandatory credit for 136 days spent in the county jail.
