Two weeks later, the dealership was told the checks were forgeries.
Officers caught up with the vehicle at the Broadmoor Towne Center. Wagner was arrested and transported to the Criminal Justice Center; the vehicle was returned to the dealership.
Police searched Wagner's home, where they say they found forged Social Security papers, fake IRS documents and checks, as well as evidence that Wagner may have pulled off a second vehicle theft using a stolen identity.
Police also allegedly found evidence that Wagner had bonded out of jail earlier in the day.
Wagner is charged with aggravated motor vehicle theft, identity theft, forgery and check fraud.
