A 19-year-old Felton man wanted since October on attempted theft and forgery charges turned himself in to Harrington police on Tuesday.
Zachary Thacker is accused of stealing a check from an unidentified victim and attempting to cash it five months ago.
Harrington Police Department spokesman Earl Brode said the victim discovered the theft and stopped payment on the check, preventing the money from being withdrawn.
Harrington police later obtained a warrant charging Thacker with second-degree forgery and attempted theft.
After turning himself in to police, Thacker was arraigned on those charges and released on a $3,000 unsecured bond, Brode said.
