Jonathan Gerence is currently being held in a Camden County jail. He also has arrest warrants for identity theft in Willistown Township, Pa.
The incident happened back in December.
Investigators say the vet, a 27-year-old, was waiting for the check and, when it did not arrive, he notified the Treasury Department.
That's when the Marine was told the check was deposited in a Bensalem, Pa. bank on December 15th.
Police say, over the course of 6 days, Gerence withdrew more than $22,000 from this?fraudulently opened account.?
Investigators say tips from the public helped lead to Gerence's identification.
