DOVER, N.H. — A man who pretended to be someone else as he tried to cash a check at a local branch of Bank of New Hampshire has been indicted on charges of forgery and identity fraud.

Nathan Copeland, 20, of 175 Haley Road in Kittery, Maine, allegedly wrote out a check made payable to Kenneth Belliveau from the account of Alan Goldfarb and then presented identification belonging to Belliveau when he tried to cash it.

Authorities say the crime occurred on Dec. 2, 2013.

If convicted, Copeland could face 3½ to 7 years in prison on the Class B felony forgery charge and a $4,000 fine.

The identity fraud charge is a Class A felony and Copeland could spend 7½ to 15 years in prison and be forced to pay a $4,000 fine before he is released.

Copeland will be arraigned at Strafford County Superior Court Wednesday at 9 a.m.
